What do you think is the most important problem facing the nation today?

Economy? Healthcare? Wars? Education?
How does your priority stack up to the recent Gallup Poll?

~ Economy Picks Up Again as Most Important Problem in U.S.~
Gallup finds an increase after eight consecutive monthly declines in the percentage naming the economy as the most important problem. Now, 31% of Americans mention the economy in general terms as the top problem, up from 26% last month. Even with the modest increase, only about half as many Americans mention the economy as the nation's top problem now as at the beginning of the year.

  • The Economy must be the first. OB can create jobs, by stopping government spending that we the tax payers have to pay for.

    If we get to keep our money then we go shopping and then store need more sales people. Simple!!

    By the way anyone can get Health care, it's Health insurance that is the problem and if the government would stay out and lets us get insurance( across state) that we need the prices would go down. Simple!!
