No, Obama hasn't made it worse it was a HUGE MESS before he took over. And it will take time to straighten out & it won't happen over night. I believe he is trying to help our country & get things accomplished. It's not only up to him, Congress needs to back him
& work with him on issues. Not against him. He cares about the working man & poor
people & I hope that the poor people will go out & vote for him as I am going to do.

r u kidding me? cares about the poor? the only thing he cares about is getting more money in his pocket , look at the mines,oil, and gas companies, hitting them with all kinds of crap, causing the mines to close,gas companies to close up, thus putting more people out of work, now he is going after the wind and solar energy people. higher tax rates more restrictions more money for permits,some have all ready laid off and closed there doors because of this, whats next hydroelectric companies? he want the united states to go dark?

What have your Senators and Congressmen done to help form a consensus in the legislature in order to get the U.S.A. moving forward in a positive manner? I believe their goal, since day one, was to make sure Obama was a one term President, right? How has that attitude helped anyone in Kentucky?

There are jobs if people will just get up off of the couch, away from W.O.W, and off the computer and go look for one.

I really don't like your attitude about the people who just lost their jobs. I am sure you must be working full time right now, and no danger of losing your job. Well let me tell you, when my husband got laid off, it broke his heart, and the jobs that might be open in Harlan pay less than the umemployment. Go ahead and make your jokes, and the ugly comments, but if you ever lose your job,(which I hope you don't) then you might understand how all these people fill right now.

I must remind you, which I am sure you already know, all of these miner's getting laid off might affect your job in a around about way.
Think about it, with less money coming in, less money going out into Harlan County stores, no health insurance, most people will just not go the doctor unless they have to or it is their child.
I don't know where you work, but it will affect you just give it a little time.
