And is the country better off?
In the fall of 2008 I remember grocery shopping in Athens, OH where I was going to college and getting texts and calls from friends and family about
what was happening with the stock market. There was an immense feeling of despair...like "it" was finally happening.
The housing market was falling apart. Approximately 2.6 million jobs were lost money.cnn.com...
The two illegal and unwarranted invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan had done nothing to help an already corrupt economic system. The economy, the
country, and our jobs were a complete mess. We have been recovering since, and are now a far cry from the impending doom and economic black hole we
had been left with.
My father always told me the most important thing to ask yourself when choosing a candidate is, "Are we better off now than we were four years
My friends and I have gotten jobs out of college. My family's jobs are safe, though the company my father works for was forced to undergo drastic
restructuring and layoffs shortly after the crash.
Are we much better off than we were in 2008? Absolutely
