ARE YOU BETTER OFF NOW THAN YOU WERE 8 YEARS AGO?

and what is the point you are trying to make here with this small chart of comparison of nearly 8 years?

Just using the same words Reagan used when he ran for president against the Carter administration.

Seems this week it's the government that's the solution, eh?

And that government is reaching back to the Roosevelt administration to apply programs to stem the spiraling Wall Street crash.

I'll answer the question.

Yes.

But then again, how I'm doing doesn't necessarily have anything to do with my financial situation or how the country is doing. :)

(Okay, I know that you're sitting there thinking I'm a smartass, so make with the name calling.)

well, no need to reach back that far. need only to look across the atlantic to see how well off we are. higher unemployment, higher taxes, higher costs, greater unrest, greater government dependency, greater dependence upon government, less freedoms, less rights.

and they all are not only reaching back to roosevelt's programs but have been applying them for years.
