Here are 70 facts about America's economy that President Obama will definitely not be campaigning on. It is frightening how far we as a collective nation have let America slip. This list puts into perspective how petty most of the news that is gathered for us and distributed in mass quantities is. 

Why are we talking about things like Chick-fil-A and Mitt Romney's tax returns? Chicken, gay rights, personal beliefs, and the obvious fact that Mitt Romney is filthy rich can't hold a candle to the more important issue of what we are going to do with our economy and how we are going to take on this national debt.

Here are a few examples from the list:
  • The price of gas – When Obama took office, a gallon of gas cost you $1.85. Today, it's up to $3.59 per gallon.
  • 71% of small business owners believe we’re still in a recession — Despite government claims that the recession actually ended years ago.
  • You have to work 107 days each year just to pay Federal, State, & Local taxes – That means you don't earn a penny until April 18.
  • More than 30% of unemployed Americans have been out of work for more than a year–In 2007, that number was 10%.
Many more disappointing statistics here.
