Blue Indiana

Welcome to our broke-ass state, President Obama.
One year ago, unemployment in Elkhart County was at 4.7%. Today, it's the highest in the nation at 15.3%, fueled largely by the rapid decline in the recreational vehicle business.

..."People who have never had to ask for assistance are having to," says Mayor Dick Moore, a Democrat in this largely Republican area.

Unemployment in the city of Elkhart (population 52,000) has hit 18%, he says.

"That's a pretty tough number," Moore says. "People are hanging in there, but … I don't think we've hit the bottom yet."
We went blue for you in November, but we've been feeling blue for a long time. Hope you can help us.

Hope you stop treating the GOP like they're ever going to play fair, like they actually give a shit about average Americans. Because they don't.

They just fucking don't.
