Demcocrats are to blame for current state of economy

When the Democrats took over Congress in January of 2007, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at an all-time high of 12,400 and a gallon of gasoline was $2.15. The Republican-led Congress of the previous 4-years had left a vibrant, strong economy in the hands of the Democrats.

Today, almost two years later, under the Democrat-controlled Congress the Dow Jones hit a 5-year low of 10,485 last week, gasoline hovers around $4 dollars a gallon and our banks are failing. All of this took place during a Congress controlled by Democrats and led by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

The thoughtful voter should consider that fact when going to the polls this November.
