It was the question Ronald Reagan made famous: Are you better off today than you were four years ago? We've had a housing crisis, a banking crisis, and a stimulus program that didn't succeed in the way that was hoped. Gasoline prices are spiking even as the economy as a whole is finally starting to perk up. The employment picture is improving, but there are still millions of people unemployed and underemployed. Has the Obama administration helped or hurt the recovery, and what should be done to help it along? We're joined tonight by return guest John Lott, who argues that the Obama administration has made things worse rather than better. He is the co-author (with Grover Norquist) of the new book "Debacle: Obama's War on Jobs and Growth and What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future" (published by Wiley). The book explains how the Obama economic policies have raised unemployment, slowed economic growth, raised the national debt, squandered taxpayer money through poor investments, and further damaged the housing market.
