When I got out of college, I didn’t really care what went on in Washington and the government. It just sort of happened behind the scenes of my life. But now I care because I see how policies and government decisions can have an impact – good or bad- on my bank account and yet, it’s so hard to decipher what is good and not good watching the news and getting the highlights. So, I went straight to Mark Hamrick, Bankrate’s senior economic analyst, to ask him how the political environment will impact you and me and what we need to know to be prepared.
