A pertinent question, especially today
October 28th, 1980 - while debating Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan asked a simple question that made American voters realize that Carter had sold them a false bill of goods. That simple question helped turn the election in his favor. It has been thirty years, but the question is as pertinent today as then.
The current congress likes to leave out the pesky little fact that they've been in charge of the government's purse strings since 2006. Today's Democrats like to point their fingers at George W. Bush for everything that is wrong in America, but as many people have pointed out, Democrats are the ones that gained control of congress four years ago - right before the economy started to tank.
With the mid-term elections coming in November, it is time again to ask America... "Are you better off than you were four years ago?"
