Since Bush took office, all of our money has been transferred upward and outward, into the hands of a few.
When Bush took office, people had savings. Now they have debts. When Bush took office people had assets. Now we're "underwater." When Bush took office we had a very large federal budget surplus. Now we have a massive, massive deficit that looks like it could reach a trillion dollars! And the national debt has reached ten trillion dollars.
But not only has the money been transferred, control over our decisions has been transferred as well. The public, through our government, is no longer able to make our own decisions. Instead these powers have been handed over to a very few ultra-wealthy people hidden behind the mask of the legal structure called the corporation. The control of the country's resources and destiny has passed to the few and we need to take it back.

How is Obama going to change this?
