Letters to the Editor

Economic woes

A letter published last month was from a classic “low-information” reader.

Obama’s record on the economy is terrible. Economist and former Sen. Phil Gramm recently gave this analysis: If the so-called recovery had been even averagely robust, 14 million more people would now be working.

The incomes of the poorest one-fifth of Americans have declined every year since 2008.

Women’s income fell during the recession under Obama and even further during the so-called recovery.

African-Americans have seen a 10 percent decline in income under Obama.

Borrowing money and doubling the national debt to boost the stock market is not a positive.

There is no blue ribbon for supporting the most inept president in our history.

— Dick G. Ellis, Fort Worth
