Would it be possible Kidboy to ask, how this economy has been good to you on a persoanl basis?

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

Thanks for asking.

This economy has helped me in many ways. My family members have better paying jobs. Our retirement fund has gone up about 30% in the last two years. Unemployment in our country and in our state is at record lows...more people working means less people dependent on government assistance and are know paying taxes...that is a few of the reasons that the economy has helped most Americans.

 

 

WHO TOLD YOU THE ECONOMY WASN'T SUPPOSED TO BE BOOMING - TRUMP?

 

As the Charts Prove - the Economy Boomed more under Obama then Trump - especially the % of lower unemployment

 

 

Where do you get these crazy ideas?

What did Trump do that increased your Family Members Pay - as I posted - the FACTS Prove if you experienced any Pay Increases in the Trump Era - it was most likely due to the Fact you're a Non-Hourly Worker or you either Live in a Liberal Leaning State where Voters demanded their Elected Officials FORCE Companies to pay a Living Wage or you Live in a Sanctuary City where the Residents demanded Equity a long time ago

 

Were your Family Members Unemployed? - if so then the difference betweeen Unemployment Income and even a Full-time Minimum Wage job may have been the reason they experienced a increase

 

BTW more poor people paying More or Higher Taxes like what happened in the Trump Tax Cut doesn't translate into Pay Increases for either the person on Unemployment or the Person working for the Government or a Private Company- No Idea Why You Threw That in There?

 

How much did your Retirement Account go up in the last 10 years because the Stock Market has been setting records way B4 Trump

What tools did your economists say the government lost via tax cuts?

Job Growth Underscores Economy’s Vigor; Unemployment at Half-Century Low

The unemployment rate fell to its lowest level in half a century last month, capping the longest streak of job creation in modern times and dispelling recession fears that haunted Wall Street at the start of the year.


Well there are Two Major Reasons the Booming Economy that Obama Started is Continuing

 

1. Trumps pick for Federal Reserve - Herman Cain - was Torpedoed

 

2. Trumps pick for Federal Reserve - Stephen Moore - was Torpedoed

 

 

Yay - Woman & African Gold Miners will be safe until Trumps next try for a Federal Reserve pick

 

 

Caine and Moore did not get the jobs but the economy is booming and unemployment is down and salaries are up. So, they were obviously not factors. Why do you bring them up?

But the economy is booming and a lot of people are better off than they were. It is not necessary to find negatives, just relax, smile and enjoy the good news for your nation.
