Obama and Trump fight over economy
 
https://www.yahoo.com/news/president...003733843.html

I knew it would happen. The booming economy is the biggest thing hurting Democrats, and since they were not able to ruin it, they are trying to take credit for it.

The economy is horrible so you should vote for Democrats!!!

The economy is great because Democrats made it magically happen the second they lost power!!!

What's worse than being wrong is flip-flopping on which way you're wrong...:yes :shrug

oh for goodness sake :rolls
there's a continuing trend steadily upward which started with the previous administration.
the numbers we have now mean trump's people haven't screwed it up too bad so far. still not as many jobs as under the previous POTUS but not terrible.
the wages aren't keeping up with the employer bottom-line growth though. so buying power is less than when I made $1.60 /hr at minimum wage back in the day.

Then why did the feds keep saying the economy was too weak and fragile to raise interest rates a 1/4 point?

I guess you think it is a coincidence that the economy shifted out of 1st gear right after Trump was Elected.

And please remind me, was it Obama that lowered taxes, and removed onerous regulations paving the way for this booming economy?

Ask yourself this question. If the economy worsened in the last 3 years, who would you blame?

Consumer confidence, and investment confidence took off like a rocket the day Trump was elected.

If Trump had kept everything AS IS, and we were seeing the boom we have, then Obama could take credit.

Lowered taxes, repealed regulations, and energy independence is what has been pushing this economy.

The 8 years of the Obama administration were the slowest years of recovery since WWII.

Under Obama food stamp dependence grew to record levels as did disability. Obama's solution was to pervert work requirements to encourage even more people to become reliant on the welfare state.

Under Trump food stamp utilization and disability income participation have declined by millions. The economy is so good people would rather get a job than collect welfare, the opposite of the Obama economy. ;)

Obama formed the President's council on Jobs made up of CEOS of major employers to maximize employment. They held several meetings at posh hotels to little effect on unemployment. Obama joked at one meeting that "shovel ready jobs weren't so shovel ready" to slaughter and applause. Let them eat cake, indeed. :o

Nearly 4 years after Obama's inauguration followed by the massive debt financed Stimulus boondoggle written by the radical Apollo group unemployment was identical to when Obama became President. During Obama's first term the only improvement over the day he took office was the month before the election, nothing suspicious there. :eek

How soon we forget huh? I remember around 2012 a lady that works for me was contacted by an agency trying to get her to quit her job and go on disability because she had breast cancer 10 years earlier. She told them no, she was healthy and wanted to work. They called a few more times after that.
