Are We Better Off Than Four Years Ago? Ronald Reagan's simple question was political gold in 1980: "Are you better off than you were four years ago?" Mitt Romney has echoed Reagan in his bid to unseat President Obama. We'll take a look at some key numbers and more importantly, we'll seek your input on a question that's likely to pop up repeatedly between now and November. Join host Mike McIntyre for the next Sound of Ideas Tuesday morning at 9:00.
