Is it any different when the left credits Obama with the recovery Trump has made?  You have different rules for Democrats?


Recovery?  From what? 

 

It was Obama who inherited a country in recession.  I daresay he left it in better shape when Trump took over.

$4 trillion wasted by Obama?  What about the tens of trillions you need for: free college, free healthcare to citizens as well as illegal aliens, $15 minimum wage, higher taxes on all, a new wealth tax, reparations for blacks, universal childcare, a new carbon tax, guaranteed income if you work or not, guaranteed housing, Medicare for all, and don't forget "the new green deal"?


We had the money for all that for THREE GENERATIONS - 1936 TO 1981. We still have it, we just need to repeal the Reagan Taxscam that RAISED taxes on the average American by 47% and CUT taxes for the 1% by 67%.

 

Republicans rant about those who are not paid enough to have to pay Federal Income Tax, but THEY are responsible for blocking increases to the minimum wage ever since it was established. During that entire time, 45 years, the rich continued to get richer every year, but the bottom 99% got richer faster and the gap between rich and poor SHRANK. Republicans hate Americans and want us to get LESS wealthy every year so their GOPerLords will become unjustifiably MORE wealthy.

 

Most recently, GOPers filibustered in 2013 to kill the Minimum Wage Fairness Act that would've raised the minimum to $10.10 by 2015 (which is what the 1964 minimium wage ($1.25) would be if adjusted for inflation) and then indexed it to CPI-W. Republicans insist the minimum wage be abolished, and failing that, have REDUCED its real value every year since 1964.

 

Contrary to Republican LIES on the subject, there is NO evidence jobs were EVER lost because of an increase in the minimum wage, and proof positive each such increase caused a marked increase in GDP.

When the Democrats waste money, they waste 10s of trillions of dollars without worry since it is not their money - it's ours.  They should be careful when wasting tens of trillions of dollars.

 

If they had a flat tax (Democrats, you make the rate) the problem would be solved.  Since many people pay no tax, they just don't care about the Democrats wasting our money.

Good morning to all-

I see that the present occupant of the White House had a "press meeting" recently- which means only the people he approves of were offically invited. Of course, like most of the present occupant's dealings, it degenerated into a cursing, shouting match and showed yet again just how low, crude, and limited the present occupant and his supporters are.

Friends, if ANY of the previous Presidents had behaved as this present occupant does, he would have been impeached- immediately. Can you imagine if President Obama had done a fraction of the abusive, mean, cruel and let's be honest here- stupid- things the present occupant has done?

Of course, President Obama was a decent, concerned and let's be honest here- intelligent- man, and the present occupant is none of these things.

I hope the rest of the coutnry is getting as weary with the present occupant's behavior and ignorance as I am.

Vote the garbage out. Send them home.

good day to all- Ed

===============================================================

I suggest that you look at what Trump has done not just at some of the things he says.

Food for thought...think about what the Democrat Socialists candidates are suggesting they will do if elected.

They are suggesting change of the highest order: free college, free healthcare to citizens as well as illegal aliens, $15 minimum wage, higher taxes on all, a new wealth tax, reparations for blacks, universal childcare, a new carbon tax, guaranteed income if you work or not, guaranteed housing, Medicare for all.


Boo....does equality and justice for all scare some???


You want equality and justice with other people's money?  I only get scared when Democrats start planning for how THEY will waste MY money.
