(5) Are rates becoming a tougher issue than before?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A recent quick poll asked, "Do you think that rates are becoming a tougher issue than they were in the past?" Some have noted increased downward pressure on rates, some have not, and others are not sure. In your experience, is there more pressure on rates than, say, a year ago? Vote on this poll and add to the discussion!
