In Just one year - - - This email comes in three parts: Part 1 In just one year. Remember the electionin 2006? Thought you might like to read the following: A little over one year ago: 1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2year high; 2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 agallon; 3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%. Since voting in a Democratic Congress in2006 we have seen: 1) Consumer confidence plummet; 2) The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3.50 a gallon; 3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10%increase); 4) American households have seen $2.3trillion in equity value evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses); 5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars; 6) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure. America voted for change in 2006, and we got it! Remember, it's Congress that makes law not the President. He has to work with what's handed tohim. Quote of the Day........"My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it." --BarackObama Part 2: Taxes...Whether Democrat or a Republicanyou will find these statistics enlightening and amazing. www.taxfoundation.org/publications/show/151.html<http://www.taxfoundation.org/publications/show/151.html><http://www.taxfoundation.org/publications/show/151.html> Taxes under ClintonTaxes under Bush 2008 Single making 30K - tax $8,400Single making 30K - tax $4,500 Single making 50K - tax $14,000Single making 50K - tax $12,500 Single making 75K - tax $23,250Single making 75K - tax $18,750 Married making 60K - tax $16,800Married making 60K- tax $9,000 Married making 75K - tax $21,000Married making 75K - tax $18,750 Married making 125K - tax $38,750Married making 125K - tax $31,250 Both democratic candidates will returnto the higher tax rates It is amazing how many people that fallinto the categories above think Bush is screwing them and BillClinto n was the greatest President ever. If Obama or Hillary areelected, they both say they will repeal the Bush tax cuts and a goodportion of the people that fall into the categories above can'twait for it to happen. This is like the movie, The Sting with PaulNewman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even know whathappened. PART 3: You think the war in Iraq is costing us too much?
