Gallup said that is the first time the level has reach 50 percent since 2007.

“Americans' optimism about their personal finances has climbed to levels not seen in more than 16 years, with 69 percent now saying they expect to be financially better off 'at this time next year,'" said Gallup.

The highlights:
  • 69 percent expect their financial situation to improve over the next year.
  • Optimism about finances over the next year is almost at a record-high level.
  • 50 percent say they are in better shape financially than a year ago.

The president has been touting the economy and stock market recently, and Republicans are urging him to continue with policies like deregulation that can continue to feed growth.


While partisanship colors the view of Democrats and Republicans on their level of optimism, both expressed confidence in the future.

This is exactly why taxes are payroll deducted. 90% of people don't pay any attention. All they look at is their take home pay. Can you imagine if everyone was paid like a 1099 self-employed individual? Where they get their gross pay then at the end of the year, they see their taxable liability and have to cut the gov't a check for that amount? America would flip it's collective wig! There would be people literally marching in the streets.

I wish it was. Perhaps then people might actually give a damn about how much money is being wasted.
