What you should know before heading to the polls this year

Posted:

What should you know before you head to the polls? A Forbes.com article, urges Americans to do research before election day.
 
The article lists ten things Americans should know about the economy before hitting the polls.
Including the hot button issue of taxes.

The article urges voters to know what the government taxes and how it spends the money.
Also, voters should understand how the amount of money in circulation affects interest rates.
 
But one of the hottest economic issues this election is of course the federal debt.
Something Financial Advisor Rick Kahler, says voters should understand before we vote.
 
"We're hearing from both parties, we need to shrink the deficit. The parties have two very different ways that they would shrink that deficit. It's a very complex decision but one a voter can weigh in on philosophically, what side am I on?" says Kahler.
 

Below the full article plus a link to the web site.
