Today’s news:

Country needs change

TimesLedger Newspapers

As 2012 moves along, there has been an improvement, ever so slight, in the unemployment figure.

It currently stands at 8.3 percent, which is a slight drop from last year, but there are still more than 3 million Americans still out of work, and that figure is actually larger because many unemployed people have simply stopped looking for work.

Our country needs to have significant improvement in its economy, along with more jobs for the unemployed and a reduction in prices on everything from food to fuel and health care, credit card and mortgage rates.

The American people will have their voices heard at the voting booth this November. It is time for big changes and they must happen soon.
