Most Press poll participants feel their personal circumstances have changed since 2008, and not for the better.

When asked “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” this is how Press readers responded:

“No” - 1,021 votes - 53 percent

“Yes” - 730 votes - 38 percent

“About the same” 165 votes - 9 percent

    spuds, sweetheart, at least for now, I have the right to FREE SPEECH. That means that I can disrespect oblooma JUST as much as you communists disrespected Bush. Get USED to it, I won;t stop, even AFTER he's been booted, like he will be, and DESERVES to be.

    I guess my analysis was correct, being that your panties are so wadded up, huh "spuds'? Obummer IS precisely like Hitler, I am correct, and it bothers you. Like that. Good. THINK about it some more, obummer=Hitler=FACT.

    I actually served this country, Active Duty, doing what Liberals like you would NEVER do, as Liberals are ANTI-Military, and always view the Brave Men & Women who serve as idiots, the same way they did in VietNam.

    So; you were born at Lake City General; man, that changes EVERYTHING I thought about you....and since most of the people here believe in the second amendment, God, and that oboomba is an obviously ignorant president, that makes YOU the minority, the 1 in 1,000 here who thinks that the kenyan is in any way good for America.

    Welcome to minority status, line up for your food stamps & free lunches, on us, the taxpayers.

    (Won't be new to you, I'm sure).

    JoeclaimshesIdaho turn off Rush,o'Reilly,Hannity, maybe read a book on common courtesy and ettiquette, realize who was elected President and show some respect for the man.My god man you blather on to like you are this great Mr America,stand up against the new hitler. I'll bet you probably dodged the draft or if you not that old did not serve in the military! I bet when you were growing up Kansas or wherever you were spawned you were probably taught by people who are as narrow minded and outright racist as the posts I've read of yours.JOE BOY I am from Idaho in fact born at Lake City General, you probably wouldn't know where that was. I know good Idahoans, and Joey you are not a good person or Idahoan! Why don't you find a cave and crawl in!

    I see that you have quoted me by putting something in " "'s, something that I DID NOT SAY. I have lived a long time(UGH). i know right now your ins company will deny and delay service that you need to live, until you die. Apparently you have not lived long enough to have Medicare. Maybe your mom/dad?? Ask them how bad it is and how will they cope without it. If they do not like it they can opt out. Ask the people of Mass. how they like Romneycare. They love it!!

    Good LUCK with all that "insurance costs won't rise anymore" garbage, Carol.

    Here's the deal:
    Boobama just built the largest insurance company the world has ever KNOWN.
    Now, if you have ben through LIFE, you KNOW that insuracne companies are (A) the richest corporations in the world and thatthey (B) try to not pay out claims and that (C) suing them over it will cost you everything you own.
    Now, I am SURE GLAD that Obama made a bigger, badder insurance company, called the US Government.
    Have a good time, Carol, when you need something done, and your government tells you it's not possible, because they have to "insure everyone else; it's only FAIR".

    Affordable Care goes into effect in 2014 ( concession), so ins. cos are increasing rates now because they can. Once the Act goes into effect there are limits and caps put into place.

    And the Dems will vote for more of this, because as a group, they are morons.

    A big part of why I am worse off is the increased health insurance and care costs which have gone up about 20% in the last year due to the Democrat's "Affordable Health Care Act" (Obamacare). How ironic. I'll be voting not so much for Romney (the RINO), but against Obama (the Marxist).
