NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — The average American family’s net worth dropped almost 40% between 2007 and 2010, according to a triennial study released Monday by the Federal Reserve.
No president can get re-elected with numbers like these.
True dat. But it will be fun to watch him try to explain why it is not so devastating.
That’s some change you can believe in.
FUBO , Data mine that you stuttering PR*CK!
Not his fault. Bush's fault. The Greek's fault. Congress's fault. Needed to hire more union firefighters, union police and union teachers. Republicans are racists. Wouldn't let him raise taxes on all those rich white people. Can't blame Zero, he was on vacation or playing golf.
Does that cover most of it?
I’m sure the first question at Baraq’s next press conference will be about this, right?
I guess nobody will mention that Democrats swept into the Congress during that time (2007 - 2010) and had a binge?
Even though I blame GWBush for not using (or threatened to use) his veto pen for part of the 2007 - 2008 time period.
The net worth in 2007 was inflated by demand for housing created by risky lending. It was a bubble in home values.
Dummies voted for the guy because he was kinda black and could read off a moving screen. Why? To prove they could get past “color”. And besides, he was a nice guy that was “clean”.
Turns out he was just another gangster wanna be. They let him in their living room and what did Obama do? He sat down, rolled a blunt and got high. Then promptly fell asleep. When he woke up he took the family credit card and the family car. He ran the credit card up to the limit then talked the credit card company in to raising the card limit. He maxed out the card again and bought his homies all sorts of stuff. He got more weed and they hit some blunts in the family car then wrecked it. It is almost totalled and may not be repairable.
Obama is a stoner who insists he knows what is what but he does not know anything. He is really an idiot punk much like Travon Martin. A gangster bad ass wanna be that can’t dunk. He is going to be kicked out of da house!
Lets see, 1992... This means that 3 years of Obama have wiped out all gains made during 8 years of Clinton and 8 years of Bush.
With fraud and the fact that the republican party has picked a candidate that can’t get more than a few points ahead of obama in presidential polls, why yes obama can.
Just imagine what most Americans “Golden Years” will look like as this society ages. Right now SS accounts for the sole income for one-third of retirees and more than 50% of the incomes for two-thirds of retirees.
The entire economy started to unravel when Dems took over Congress in 2007 and accelerated downhill with Obama’s election. The year before they took over Congress, the deficit was 150 billion. Today it is tenfold more at 1.5 trillion.
Wrong, Zero said the private sector is just fine and more than 50% of the population believe it. The also think he fixed the mess from President Bush.
Bad economy and soaring oil prices. Both bammy and the rats fault.
You are wrong!
Dem peoples hoo vote for Obama ain’t got no “net worth” in their stash.
Obama hass de big stash and he be dolen it out to their cribs.
.....Ebonics spoken here.......
I agree. I live in a part of the country where the values didn’t inflate like some parts of the country. Now the median worth is more in line with reality than the pie in the sky housing bubble. What fool loans $$$ based on self certification of income?
