How would you describe your family’s financial situation right now?

Has it gotten better or worse in the past three years?

I think that if mitt romney gets to win the election he will totally messed up this country. If I will have to choose from romney or obama. Definitly obama!

Our income is better but I'd probably still have to say our financial situation is worse overall simply b/c of the housing market effects.  That said, our income would have been higher with a Republican as president.

I was better off three years ago. We are under the poverty line and it sucks. A paycheck doesn't last a week with our bills. They are aren't dreadful, but we get paid so little its crazy

 definitely doing better than 3 years ago. Around this time back then, I was 5 months pregnant with my son and had just lost my job that past December. Now, I'm working and working on getting my degree - finally!!! my son will be 3 this July and he's beautiful. Me and his dad are engaged now and I'm very optimistic about the future. it seems like once I had my son, things started falling into place... I thank God for the honor of being his mom every single day...

I guess about the same We were both promoted, cancelled our cable, and renegotiated our phone plan, but we've also added expenses in the form of a toddler.
