One of the most effective campaign slogans in recent memory and helped a young upstart, Bill Clinton to usurp a sitting president. If there is any one thing that touches and affects each and every American, it is the economy. It seems so obviously central to each of our well being. Yet, here we are in the most vibrant economical climate that I have known in my lifetime. People are working. Welfare rolls are dropping. Why do we seem so intent on crushing what is working? Is political gain truly more important to the average American than his ability to make ends meet? I feel as though I have transported to some odd alternate universe these last few years.
