jist of this article>>>
Traffic is down 30% from 2010 in Americas 100 largest metro areas, due to higher gas prices and the lousy Obama economy
There was a link between job growth and more traffic. Cities that outdid the national average of 1.5% growth in employment had the greatest increases in traffic
1. I want a job not a cheaper loan. Students and homeowners can talk about how Obambi promised jobs but now all he talks about is a cheaper student loan or a refi on your home. How is that working for you? College students are at 40% unemployment (?)Billions in home loan money never got to the people that needed help. "Broken promises and the wrong agenda!!
2. On election day the price of gas was $1.79 during that time Obambi has done plenty to stop more oil and gas getting to the consumer to lower the costs. What have you given up as a result of higher gasoline prices?
Easy to believe. Traffic on highways here in the south bay bare no resemblence to what they did in the eighties, even though the population count has supposedly grown.
I try to limit going to the grocery store to maybe once every 3-4 weeks. Of course, it takes it’s toil and I’m out of commission the rest of the day but I can’t see spending more on gas than a bag of groceries.
Hopefully lots of liberals won’t have the gas to go vote.
Make the same then-now link of electricity price increases due to obama's war on coal and the EPA insanity. Then pull a Reagan and ask if they are better off now than three years ago.
I think what would help is to have one that goes like this: Since Obambi and the EPA started a War on Coal plants the following plants are listed or have closed. Each one used ____ thousand train car loads of coal. Now those companies have fewer employees. The war on workers is a war on the middle class. It is a war on folks that make a living with their hands.
