Why do Dems seem to not care about economy?August 8, 2018 9:48 am at 9:48 am #1570735
Which ones?August 8, 2018 9:48 am at 9:48 am #1570740
Because political parties ALWAYS focus on what their opponents are doing wrong, and Trump has so far done very well in economic matters (though his “trade war” might be his undoing, but that isn’t clear yet).August 8, 2018 11:20 am at 11:20 am #1570775
Because the Dems want u to rely on government welfare. Who cares about the economy. If they need money they literally go to the printing press!August 8, 2018 1:08 pm at 1:08 pm #1570861
Because they do address the economy.
It was great during Obama’s 2 terms after almost completely collapsing at the end of Bush.
The Republicans are the ones going to the printing presses after giving a GIGANTIC tax break to the wealthy and corporations and adding to the deficit. The deficit is projected to rise to 1 Trillion dollars under Trump.August 9, 2018 2:08 pm at 2:08 pm #1571554
The dems may be amazing at economy, but they still don’t talk about it in their campaign points, and they haven’t yet explained a better way than trump to run it.
and just by the way, the tax break was for low income too.August 9, 2018 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm #1571779
You can tell jackk is a liberal because the Democrats mascot is a donkey 😜August 9, 2018 11:26 pm at 11:26 pm #1571813
The government isn’t supposed to run the economy. The economy is supposed to run itself.August 10, 2018 8:08 am at 8:08 am #1571840
The dems do address the economy. They already explained they will offer “free” college tuition for everyone including illegals, subsidise housing, food, and contraceptives, and offer “free” healthcare as a basic right. They’re even discussing offering “basic income” to everyone for “free”. The left wing Vox News, I heard, quoted a new study that these programs would require taxation and government spending at above 60% of GDP, and would add over $100 trillion of debt to the US Economy over the next couple decades…. or was it $200 trillion? I guess at that point, it won’t really matter… They’re basically intending to tax everyone at 50-70% and redistribute that money as they see fit.August 10, 2018 8:08 am at 8:08 am #1571838
It is Time for TruthParticipant
The middle of the road blue dog democrat would prefer they stick to the economy primarily.
Problem is the Democrats are driven and bankrolled for almost a hundred years by the hard/far left,for whom the economy is basically a sop for votersAugust 10, 2018 9:34 am at 9:34 am #1571886
Jakk- I’ll be down lkaf zchus that you are simply ignorant of the facts.
take a look at the actual number of employed and unemployed people in the country during Obama presidency.
Take a look at the % of people receiving government benefits during that time.
Tell me again how the economy was doing great??August 10, 2018 10:37 am at 10:37 am #1571928
The economy is not so simple. You can have more jobs, but if the Jobs are low paying without any benefits its a false statisticAugust 10, 2018 12:35 pm at 12:35 pm #1571957
The president is not the director of the economy.August 10, 2018 12:35 pm at 12:35 pm #1571955
They have. They want you to return the “crumbs” back in the form of higher taxes. I also assume that the Democratic position from 2006-2009 still holds. That is higher taxes, nationalizing and seizing 401(k)’s/IRA’s, etc, and forcing layoffs and outsourcing via domestic policies.August 10, 2018 1:17 pm at 1:17 pm #1571961
a low paying job is better than none.August 11, 2018 11:18 pm at 11:18 pm #1572162
Coffee Addict – I am not sure why the Mods allow you to post these kinds of caustic comments that do not contribute.August 11, 2018 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #1572173
A wish list is not an economic plan of action.August 11, 2018 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #1572171
Yungrman – Do you remember the financial collapse of 2008 ? Lehman Brothers? Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. Merrill Lynch, AIG, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, HBOS, all came within a whisker of doing so and had to be rescued.
Republican leaders, who for years boasted about the self-evident benefits of light-touch regulation, had to sink trillions of dollars to prevent the world bank system collapsing.
Those are the facts.
Obama steered the economy through the recovery which continues under Trump.August 12, 2018 11:02 am at 11:02 am #1572492
The recovery ended once we reached the spot we were in in 2007, now is new progress. you can’t have the “recovery” going on for the next hundred years, at some point it has to end.August 12, 2018 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm #1572640
Jackk didn’t point out that dispute the Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae issue, the leaders of those agencies were still granted massive bonuses by the administration during the bailout.
However, even before 2008, we’re ignoring the fact that the whistle was blown somewhere around 2003-2004 I want to say, but the dem’s claimed racism at any housing market reforms that were meant to avoid the recession.
When I say it in that order, doesn’t that crisis start to look self-inflicted? “Self-inflicted”, that’s the Democratic economic plan for 2020.
