    Ok I voted yes because its true. But not because of whose in office. I think for the most part the economy does what the economy does and wall street is no different. In my case. Utiility bills and food bills continue to go down. My wifes companys is doing very well and the employees are being rewarded for it. (its a european company). Even our medical bills have dropped. So we have finally been able to take care of matters that have needed attention.

    I do not believe that the President or Congress except in rare circumstances has any real affect on money. Sure they do bailout and pass taxes and insert regulations, but on the whole looking at the BIG national picture I just don't see it.

    The middle class has been slipping back since Bill Clinton left office.

    I am personally better off, but there are only a few things I can name that are a result of the President's actions, otherwise it's mostly because of my own decisions.

    I think it's a rather pointless talking point for either Romney or Obama. Everybody lives in different situations and makes different choices, for either side to say whether you're better off or worse off implies that we are more reliant on the President than we actually are.

    I am much better off, we paid off thousands and thousands dollars of medical bills the last 4 years.

    Financially I'm certainly better off now than I was when Obama took office. The rest is about a wash I'd say.

    Obama has nothing to do with it though.

    My family, closest friends and I are all doing better BUT I cant attribute that all to Obama. Some of it he or the administration are definitely responsible for though.

    ALso just a note, overall this is definitely not the only thing that matters to me, while it is a plus its only part of the equation.

    Yes, but that really has nothing to do with Obama though.

    Are you sure? Because he'll take credit either way.

    Moreover, I am sure some people are better off... after all, if they were blacks or handicapped, they got a free phone!
