@thidDo you understand how spending originates? It starts in the
house. Who has had solid control of the house for 8 years? Republicans.
Republicans had an equal hand in the debt accumulation.Stop being
ideological and realize you are supporting debt when you vote republican as
well. Republicans don’t have a leg to stand on when they talk about
reducing debt or deficits.
@Thid Barker"This concludes the lesson on national debt for
today!"Is tomorrow's lesson about how Trump's tax cuts
will help push the annual deficit up from around half a trillion to around a
trillion dollars in just two years?
Shaun: Washington Times Nov. 1. 2016: "Mr. Obama’s spending agreement
with Congress will suspend the nation’s debt limit and allow the Treasury
to borrow another $1.5 trillion or so by the end of his presidency in 2017.
Added to the current total national debt of more than $18.15 trillion, the red
ink will likely be crowding the $20 trillion mark right around the time Mr.
Obama leaves the White House." The national debt at the end of GWB's
tenure was about $10 trillion! $10 trillion times two (doubling)= $20 trillion!
Socialism is very, very expensive!This concludes the lesson on national
debt for today!
@thidIn what sectors are wage growth rising? Also do you notice
every time someone mentions trumps deficits you blame obama. Question who has
controlled the house since 2010? Republicans. Where does spending originate? The
house. How much was the deficit this past year and who was in control of all
forms of government?
@thid barker"Barack Obama added more national debt than ALL other
presidents. combined! "Really? Cite the specific policies
implemented by Obama that 'added more debt than all other presidents
combined. Cite the amount each policy contributed to the total.This
claim gets thrown around constantly by people who are sure Obama himself spent
the money, until those people are pressed to back up the claim.So.
Back up the claim. Don't just parrot talking points.
In politics it is axiomatic that the sitting president is rewarded or blamed for
economic conditions. Bill Clinton had the campaign slogan It's the economy,
stupid, although George HW Bush had questionable fault for the lack of economic
growth. Whether or not Trump is responsible for today's robust economy is
debatable, but he still gets the credit and Obama gets the blame for anemic
growth during his administration.
Shaun: Wages are rising at their fastest annualized rate since a peak prior to
the Great Recession in 2007, according to the US Labor Department. Don't
you trust your own government?Deficits? The king of deficits, Barack Obama
added more national debt than ALL other presidents. combined! Debt comes from
deficits! What gives me hope is our economy is and will continue to
produce more revenue and by the time President Trump leaves office, we will have
the lowest deficits in 20 years! Which means our debt growth will come down!
Why? Because businesses and workers in America pay taxes in American and foreign
countries do not pay taxes in America! See how simple it is?
@thid I just conservatives to be honest. Are wages really rising
except for the tech sector? Also why is it ok for republicans to
spend frivolous and continue to raise the deficit but it wasn’t ok for
Democrats amuse me! In one breath they tell us our growing economy is because of
Obama! Then in the next breath they tell us our economy isn't really
growing and even if it is, it won't last! Which is it? The truth is
Democrats have painted themselves into a corner and are in full panic mode! If
our economy continues to grow and Americans continue to become more prosperous
and safe, Democrats lose! Even staunch Democrat Bill Maher wants our economy to
collapse! One party is the party of hope, vision, safety, freedom, border
security and prosperity! The other party is offering Americans, Venezuela-no
hope, no prosperity, no future! Can you see another red wave approaching in less
than 100 days?
The Donald respects the Fed only until they are tweeted out as the goat when
trade policy causes a recession.
Yes, because an average growth rate of 1.48% is so much better than likely 3-4%?
Getting higher economic growth is not that hard. Limit the size of government
and stop over-regulating business.The U.S. growth rate has
historically averaged 3%, and every president prior to Obama had at least 1 year
of greater than 3% growth. FDR was even able to get over 3% four times during
the Great Depression.Trump's numbers are not all that great,
but with the projected grown rate of 3% seems like we have moved into the fast
lane after 8 years averaging less than 1.5%.
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's top economic policymakers
insisted Sunday that the robust growth marked in the April-June quarter will
maintain its pace======And they also have some
beachfront property for sale in the Mojave Desert for anyone who believes them.
