Right now, worse. A certain president put us in more than a trillion dollars in debt paying for more war. And it takes time to rebuild such a damaged economy. Eventually, if Obama pulls through, America could go back to a more stable economy and things will get better. It's all in the hands of the government.
America is getting worse every day. It's a horrible situation because the citizens like to blame the president(s) Obama and Bush when in fact they are only half the problem. The citizens are the other half. The high divorce rate in America is an example. The president can't fix this without making it harder to divorce or making it downright illegal, but an abusive Husband/Wife does not deserve to be in a committed relationship and their spouse does not deserve the abuse. The higher divorce rates, in my opinion, will only lead to increasing crime rates. There are some things we have to fix ourselves, because if we don't America will forever be in the pits.
