my savings didnt...my business grew when Clinton was in office, and my paychecks grew right along with it, as did my employees. The last 3 yrs have probably been the slowest since I started the business....and my customers are the same way, not too many of them buying alot of new equipment nowadays, we are just now recovering from the 9/11 hit....companies finally started doing some research and development investing last yr and giving us the o k to make the parts they need.
I have seen more of my competitors close doors / layoff employees in the past 2 yrs than the previous 4 yrs. Your paycheck might have grown, but has your savings grown any? It's not what you make, it's what you are able to keep! Doesn't help any if your paycheck doubles, but inflation triples, I don't recall $2 a gallon gas before this administration. Yes, my paycheck has grown, but what it buys sure hasn't!
I supported Bush in 2000, thought he was the best candidate then, but I never thought he would go overboard and tell me what's right and what's wrong for my family, those are decisions I feel I can make on my own. I don't need the gov't telling me what I can and can't watch or what I can and can't listen too!
