2006 : Democrats Bring A New Direction To America

Democrats win House, promise new direction
POSTED: 6:05 p.m. EST, November 8, 2006

(CNN) — Democrats promised Wednesday to lead the country in a new direction after winning control of the House for the first time in 12 years in midterm elections.

By early Wednesday, Democrats had picked up at least 29 seats; they needed 15 to capture a majority in the House. Two Democratic seats in Georgia that were targeted by Republicans remained too close to call.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-California, is now poised to become the first female speaker of the House.

Pelosi promised to lead the nation in a new direction “in partnership, not in partisanship.”

    Or, in summary:

    07/24/2007 $5.85
    07/24/2008 $6.55
    07/24/2009 $7.25

    Fundamental economics–if you raise the cost [price] of something, you will decrease the demand.
