We pay cost of Dems shortsightedness

Time and again we see the Democrats create problems then claim to be the ones capable of fixing them. Case in point, they have mass produced the dollar making it a lot less valuable than it was. They have driven up the cost of energy and gasoline, their policies have raised the cost of food, and most any other product people need,


Now they claim that minimum wage is not high enough, that people who are making the minimum wage can't raise a family or can't buy a house, not that they could at $10 per hour, but that's another issue altogether. Their so called war on poverty has been going on for 60 years now, but their own policies keep generating more poverty.

More people are under the poverty line since Obama took control of Washington than ever before. Their policy of the past that wanted anyone who wanted to buy a house should be able to, created the housing bubble which in turn has killed the housing industry, bankrupted many banks, and with their Dodd-Frank bill has made it harder to get a loan in the first place.

Of course, they never want to look at the results of their policies, because results don't matter to them, however they should matter to the people, as we're the ones paying the cost of such short sightedness.
