Worse off with Obama

I am one of the people who is much worse off than I was in 2008. That is all on account of President Obama and Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

First Mr. Obama’s Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and his failed attempt to stimulate the economy reduced bank interest on our savings to near zero. We saved all our lives so our interest and Social Security could give us a decent income. With the loss of several thousands in interest, we are reduced to poverty level. Even a millionaire couldn’t live on his interest.

Then Mr. Cuomo destroyed our Elderly Pharmaceutical Insurance Coverage causing prescriptions which cost no more than $20 to cost $200 or $300 or more. My wife and I each take seven prescriptions. Figure that out.

Honestly, I would vote for my dog before I would vote for either of these failures. I know the dog couldn’t govern very effectively, but he wouldn’t make the costly and unfair mistakes of these two men. Best of all, dogs don’t practice or support legal abortion or same-sex marriage.
