The Younger Generations Facing Bigger Financial Burdens

When are the younger generation going to say enough is enough?

I truly worry about how my children and grandchildren are going to deal with a higher tax burden, as we have a National debt that is totally out of control. The cost of gas and heating fuel is around $4 per gallon. When the current administration took over, it was under $2.

I don’t understand why anyone and everyone wouldn’t be upset with the way things are going. In the first four years of the current administration, the goals was to get unemployment below 6%, you all know, we didn’t come close. At the beginning of the second term, we are at nearly at 8%. If they tell the truth about the real unemployment numbers and under employed, the number is at least double.

We have a welfare and government aid system in this country, that does not promote getting off this kind of support. The number of folks that are getting this aid is totally insane. When are the younger generation going to say, enough is enough?
