Today’s news:

Needed change nowhere in sight

TimesLedger Newspapers

As we approach the presidential election, the state of our nation’s economy is still not good. Unemployment continues above 8 percent and prices on everything, from food and health care to gasoline and home mortgages, continue to be high.

This summer’s extreme heat wave and drought threatens to drive up food prices across the nation even more. Our candidates for president, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, continue to verbally deride each other while not really having any real concrete solutions for solving this nation’s economic woes.

The American people want to have genuine change, but who can believe either one of these candidates? Politicians are a lot of hot air with no credible results to improve our nation’s economy. This Congress is probably the most inept and dysfunctional one that has ever been elected to office.

Given Congress, Obama and Romney, we are in serious trouble.
