Grocery prices are up 40 percent.

U.S. household income has fallen nearly $6,000 to $50,000.

Your household share of the U.S. debt increased $35,000 to $121,200.

He claims to be our jobs president.

From 1948 to 2008, that’s 60 years, the U.S. experienced 37 months of unemployment over 8 percent.

Since 2008, under Obama, the U.S. experienced 43 months of unemployment over 8 percent.

Wow! That’s pretty amazing. Obama, in just 3-1/2 years, managed to do what 11 previous

presidents couldn’t accomplish in 60 years.

More change we can do without.
