RE: Bloomberg.com on Romney's "Are you better off?"--"Americans Say They’re Better Off"
If people just considered the added benefits from the health care act, they'd know we're all better off. But I think the economy turned a corner. Last month the jobs number was skewed because of a jump in people coming into the job market, which I think was right wingers lying to the pollers, but that's probably just me being cynical. Unemployment has dropped 3-4 points in Oregon and that's definitely a good sign overall. If the logging counties would just shift their economies to something modern and sustainable, the whole state would be better off. That's probably true of a lot of counties across the country.
