    Will it become even worse for the working class?

    The gap between the "haves" and the "have-nots" will become the widest it has ever been.

    If Romney's policies reduces unemployment the gap between the haves and have nots will narrow. If you have no income, you have not.

    Tax cuts for his rich buddies will expand the gap to levels last seen during the Great Depression.

    Agreed..........and he will be president with no vote from me. No vote for Obama either.

    This country is $16 trillion+ in debt and growing. Europe is teetering on the edge of a financial meltdown. Japan has been in an economic malaise since the 90's. China's prosperity depends very much on everyone else being prosperous. What is Obama doing to lead us out of this? Well? You can take all of the income of the rich and only pay a small fraction of what is owed. And people can come on here all they want and talk about FOX News ad nauseum, but the above is true, we are all screwed, and about the best we can hope for in the next 20+ years is we keep coasting along without everything going to hell. I'm concerned that some will take advantage to push a new global war on us, and with our technology it'll make WWII look like the Spanish-American War. 5 years ago when we were $11 trillion in debt there was much talk of if we didn't get it under control it could cost us our entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare. Do you think those programs are better off because we're now deeper in debt? You'd think a Democrat president would do everything to safeguard those programs but not only has he run up the debt but his idea of stimulating the economy was to cut the tax that funds Social Security so we'd have more to spend now. Is that really a good idea? Really? The only thing I see right now going a long ways toward improving the U.S. economy is energy production and energy independence. But we have a president who thinks renewables like solar are the only answer and has done everything in his power to hurt oil, natural gas, nuclear, and coal. He's poured billions into renewables with nothing really to show for it. I don't believe for a second one man will have the answers to all that ails us but when you have a president throwing up roadblocks with the considerable power of his office you have to wonder just what are his goals? It sure isn't improving the economy or he'd be doing very different things than what he's tried.

    If the US government is not borrowing for infrastructure at near 0% interest, there is something seriously wrong. And when one candidate decries such spending as "wasteful stimulous" ya gotta wonder about his business acumen.

    The last decade suggests his policies will do nothing more than what Bush and Obama have tried.

    Where's the infrastructure? The "shovel ready jobs"? If the stimulus isn't producing jobs it is wasteful. But hey, states were given hundreds of billions to keep up gov't workers pay and benefits. After all gov't employee unions contribute much of that money into Democrat campaign coffers.

    Tax cuts and trickle down economics.

    Republican governors made a big show of "not taking" stimulus money in front of the cameras and shovrling it in the back door.

    All I know is that Romney promises half a trillion in tax cuts for the rich, but it will be balanced off by the middle class no longer being able to deduct mortage interest, nor health bennies, plus higher co payments for medicare.

    He thinks the rich guys will trickle down thier money - just like he does in the Cayman Islands and Switzerland ! Hahahaaaa !!!

    US companies are already sitting in trillions of dollars in surplus - but Romeny thinks they need more ! Hahhhaaaaha !

    Trillions of dollars in surplus? Really? Why, if folks are spending that kind of money(the companies don't print it after all), then there's no recession. We'd have a thriving economy. When and where did he promise a half trillion in tax cuts for the rich? When and where did he say that the mortgage deduction, etc will be eliminated?

    You need to watch the news more often !
    He wants a 20% tax max, but on a balanced budget, which will cost 456 Billion. Where do you think he will balance it from ? - Has to be taking away from somewhere else ! Take your best guess !
