In October 2008, Democrats worked with the Bush Administration to pass the Troubled Asset Relief Program in order to prevent another Great Depression. Now, more than a year later and after major efforts by Democrats, our economy is seeing signs of improvement. We lost fewer jobs in November than we did in any single month since December 2007, GDP is growing, and the Dow is up. What a difference a year – and effective Democratic action – makes in addressing the problems facing our nation.
