On the economy, it's Hillary

Posted: March 15, 2008

WE OWE more on our homes than we have equity. We're paying ridiculously high gas prices, along with other higher prices because of these gas prices, yet we are not bringing in any more money.

Five states have suspended educational loans, because the money simply isn't there. Health programs are being cut, along with programs in the arts, and others. Forty-three cents of every tax dollar is being spent on the military, with only 20 cents to health care and 12 in response to poverty. Something is wrong.

Our economy has become the most important issue in this election. I want someone in office who will turn the economy around. Someone who really cares about the health crisis.

People shouldn't have to be forced to choose between paying the rent or mortgage, buying food, or getting medical help. No matter what your political affiliation, it is a fact that our economy has not been as good since Bill Clinton left office.

And I believe that, just as he did, Hillary will do the same for our economy and our health crisis. People say Bill will be advising her. So what? Every president's spouse has advised him, and publicly so. Big deal!

I sure as heck would want some advice from someone who helped turn the economy around for the better! It doesn't mean he'll be running things.

Whomever you vote for, do get out and vote!
