What the facts say about this.


Quote:
However, the economists point out that there are other factors, such as better oil prices and international conditions, that could be driving these better numbers for Democratic presidents. In short, Democrats occupying the Oval Office tend to have a little better luck.


Experts we spoke with largely held the same views...

Yes, if you consider nearly all gains going to the top few as doing better we are doing better.

I do not. No, the GOP would not do any different.

I do think there are more speculators and bubbles under the democrats. The democrats love the FED, and they have ways of using the government to artificially prop up the economy. But don't worry, there is probably a huge bubble around the corner in most cases. For example, the latest "surge" in the stock market is just the FED buying up a bunch of securities. And then trying to speculate about the 'health' of the economy. Democrats are VERY good at manpulating numbers like GDP, but bad at actually creating any sustainable production.

Republicans are no better though.

Oh please. Who are the ones who love (and) sold trickle down economics?

Now the orange GOP messiah is going to give us MORE trickle down economics. He just doesn't call it that.

Whatever. I'm just going to minimize spending to be in good shape for an economic downturn.

Isn't the democratic tax policy better for growth? The republican policy only helps if wealthy people receiving tax breaks actually invest their untaxed money into businesses which many may not do.

Obama. That has been his entire economic policy. Q.E. was the largest (failed) trickle down program in the history of the world.

Probably a good idea but that will likely get us more government backed trickle down programs regardless of who wins.

Debt and spend is a good short term strategy, if all you care about is instant gratification. Eventually, the buck stops somewhere and debt has to be repaid though. That's when it's time for the grown ups to take over and start making the tough decisions that Dumbycrats aren't capable of making.
