From Internet reports:
THE UNITED STATES BEFORE JIM WEBB & DEMOCRATS TOOK CONTROL OF CONGRESS...a little over one year and five months 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%.
THE UNITED STATES SINCE JIM WEBB & THE DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS TOOK OFFICE IN JANUARY 2007:
1) Consumer confidence plummet;
2) The cost of regular gasoline soars 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 boy has Senator Webb delivered!
Part 2: Taxes...
Whether Democrat or a Republican you will find these statistics enlightening and amazing. www.taxfoundation.org/publications/show/151.html
Taxes under Clinton Taxes under Bush 2008
Single making 30K - tax $8,400 Single making 30K - tax $4,500
Single making 50K - tax $14,000 Single making 50K - tax $12,500
Single making 75K - tax $23,250 Single making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 60K - tax $16,800 Married making 60K- tax $9,000
Married making 75K - tax $21,000 Married making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 125K - tax $38,750 Married making 125K - tax $31,250
Barack Obama, along with Senator Webb, will return our country to the higher tax rates. It is amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think Bush is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever. If Obama is elected, he says he will repeal the Bush tax cuts and incredibly, a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above can't wait for it to happen. This is like the movie, The Sting with Paul Newman; you scam somebody out of some money and they don't even know what happened.
PART 3: Spending
You think the war in Iraq is costing us too much? The Democratic Congress is spewing propaganda that it is the Iraq war and the war on terror that is bankrupting us. Read this: the liberal big government handout programs supported by the Democrats are actually bankrupting us. Ergo, 14 verifiable facts, with URL's for verification:

Virginian's didn't understand that change is all they would have left in their wallets after Webb was elected to the Senate. Looks like this Report Card gets Webb socially promoted to another year in the Senate.
