    I've never bought into the idea that anyone sitting in D.C. determines my personal fortunes in life.
    I've never been a fan of the "blame game".
    Having said that I am financially better off today than I was in January 2009. However I take the credit and responsibility for my own wellbeing. Overall the nation's key performance indicators are much better than they were during "The Great Recession".
    I have had hard times under Democrat and Republican administrations. I know "If it's going to be it's up to me."
    The world may not owe you anything but (you) owe yourself the world!

      I agree! But, so many act as if their lives are determined by people and forces out of their control.

      It is SO MUCH easier for people to give their power away than to be accountable & responsible for their lives, either positive or negative, hmmm....

    Better now, because I have health insurance, which I couldn't afford before the Affordable Care Act.
