As Dems keep trying to paint a rosy picture of how much better things are today then when Republicans had control, ask your self this, is it really true?

In January 2007 before the Democrats took over Congress, unemployment was 4.6 percent; now it's 9.6 percent.

In January 2007 there were 7.1 million unemployed people in America; now there are 14.9 million.

In January 2007 the median home price was $210,600; today it's $179,300.

In January 2007 the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at 12,500; today it's at 10,840.

In January 2007 the gross federal debt was $9 trillion; today it's $13.5 trillion.

The poverty rate in 2006 was 12.3 percent; now it's 14.3 percent

In the final budget created by a GOP-controlled Congress, the deficit was $160 billion; now it's $1.6 trillion.

Do you really want to go back to those days? As Dems keep asking us. Be truthful when answering that question to them.
