Well I would have to say even if you have a job and your salary is the same or even if you were lucky and your salary has gone up marginally there are many other factors to consider.
So basically living on the same income you are paying more than double to fill up your car, you are paying close to double for groceries to feed your family, you are definitely paying substantially more for health insurance, depending on where you live you likely might be paying more for electricity to heat and cool your home. If you have a child in college or about to head off to college, well tuition continues to climb, trust me you most likely don’t have enough saved for college. If you own a home, odds are it isn’t worth as much as it once was……but if you’re lucky you don’t owe more on it than your mortgage.
Bottom line how much of your money are you keeping in your pocket? You may be getting by, but are you getting ahead or sliding backwards?
I’m sure there are other things I didn’t even think of, but you get my drift. If you look at that list it is true that Obama is not responsible for all of it, but the question everyone should be asking is what has done to make those things better. The answer in many cases is he’s actually taken steps that will make them worse.
