Since when are good paying jobs "Trickle down"? Remember, poor people do not employ people. Wealthy employ many. Welfare is trickle down when there are no wealthy people building and employing.

That is a demonstration he did care.

It would have been spectacular if he had eliminated it.
But Repubs are in glass houses if they want to try to throw that stone considering the last three Repub presidents ALL raised the deficit.
Trump is likewise shown to be on course for doing that.
But of course, the right is all about bu-bu-bu-Obama on this one...

Tell me AZRWinger.
Is your boy Trump gonna RAISE the deficit?
Or is he gonna lower it...
Or is your silence on that a demonstration that you don't recognize or don't care...

"Wealthy people" are not the job creators.
The average man are the job creators. A dollar in the hands of an average income man does more for the economy than that same dollar in the hands of a rich man.

The most profound demonstration of this is simply this.
Under Obama, the rich continued to get richer and richer.
But that trickle down was not seen...

Demand is what employs people not wealthy people.

Nonsense. I've never drawn a paycheck from an average man.

I love the bolded. I think it's liberal talking point #67.

If Obama was there 8 years, and he was, and the rich got richer, and they did, and that's bad, which is debatable, why is the left so enamored with the Obama economic policy?

The wealth gap is at this point is squarely in Obama's legacy.

Obama did nothing to fix it. It increased during his tenure.
