Eight Years of GOP Failure, Measured


Asked and answered: are we better off than we were eight years ago?

This is the record of the Bush-Cheney administration, which John McCain supported more than 90% of the time.

Highlights from that chart in text form:

  • Cost of a family health insurance premium: up 68%
  • Number of uninsured people: up 19%
  • Number of families in poverty: up 19%
  • Number of children in poverty: up 15%
  • Corporate profits: up 101% - but - real median household income: down $324.
Can we do better than this? Yes we can.
