Our dollar is being de-valued, by the massive debt, and the non-stop printing of money by the obama administration. And what is our dear leader doing to help? He is increasing taxes on you, notice how your pay check got smaller after the first of the year? To help you out even more, he is not planning on increasing the federal tax on a gallon of gas. How much more of this can we take?

To all those griping about the U.S. devaluing the dollar, get used to it. We're in the middle of a currency war with all the other industrialized, goods exporting countries. The British pound, the Euro, the Yen, and the Chinese Yuan are all racing to the bottom, in an effort to make their country's goods seem more inexpensive and attractive.

With Obama at the helm our debt is increasing faster and the printing of money by Bernanke is causing the dollar to go down. The results are that the middle class is paying much more to live.
