How are you better off than four years ago?

In case you haven’t heard, Mitt Romney – first presidential candidate to purchase a trending topic on Twitter – saw #AreYouBetterOff blow up in his face when the Twitterverse responded with a tsunami of assorted versions of YES.

    thanks to the First Time Home Buyer credit.  I was able to keep my business going after the crash of 2008 with work from the Stimulus for infrastructure spending.  The tax credits for my small business kept my taxes low, and I got a credit to pay for health care costs too.  I doubt I would have such a good report if President Obama had not been in office.  I am better off than I was when Bush was President. For sure.
