Why "change" isn't always so hot...

This line of argument is largely specious (hat tip: Chuck Muth). But Rep. Hill used it in 2006 on gasoline prices (in an attempt to ascribe blame to Rep. Sodrel), so he should have to lay in the bed he's made...

Remember the election in 2006?

A little over one year ago:

1) Consumer confidence stood at a 2 1/2 year high;
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon;
3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%.

Since voting in a Democratic Congress in 2006 we have seen:

1) Consumer confidence plummet;
2) The cost of regular gasoline soar to over $3.50 a gallon;
3) Unemployment is up to 5% (a 10% increase);
4) American households have seen $2.3 trillion in equity value evaporate (stock and mutual fund losses);
5) Americans have seen their home equity drop by $1.2 trillion dollars;
6) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure.

"America voted for change in 2006, and we got it!"

As I said during the last campaign, Baron campaigned on "change" as a slogan-- and he was change....spare change.

If people want true change, there is only one option for 9th District voters in November!
