Letter to the Editor: Are We Better Off Four Years Later?

This reader thinks the choice is obvious, but what do you think?

Letter to the Editor: Are We Better Off Four Years Later?

The following letter was submitted by Marc Perkel in the midst of this week's Democratic National Convention:

Republicans are asking the question, "Are you better off than you were 4 years ago?"

If you don't think we are better off, then vote Republican, because the Republicans are going to take you back there. But if you think going back to Bush is a bad idea then vote for the Democrat and let the recovery continue.

The Republicans dug a very deep hole and it's going to take a long time to undo the damage they did to America. I don't think you'll find anyone who will trade where are to go back to where we were 4 years ago.

I'm Marc Perkel - And I approved this message!

So what do you think? Are we better off? It's a very charged question. Did Bush cause the recession? Did Clinton lay the groundwork for it? Tell us in the comments! And submit your own letter by emailing jacob.bourne@patch.com.
