You've gotten a pretty good sample of what she promises, what she delivers, and the differences between the two.

You can guess what shape the country would be in if she'd won. Would you be better off if she had won, instead of President Trump?

As an investor, I would be WAY better off had Hillary been elected.

Trump and his stupid tariffs are causing confidence problems in the stock market.

The tax legislation has INCREASED my taxes.

Future debt and deficits caused by the IRRESPONSIBLE tax legislation will cause Congress to look once again at cutting Medicare and SS benefits.

Tariffs are already causing layoffs, cancellation of business expansion, unemployment, and eventually business closures.

Trump has systematically undermined SS and Medicare, US fiscal soundness, business expansion and growth - and alienated our allies - causing us to be far more vulnerable to terrorism and other calamities.

We ALL would have been much better off with Hillary.

Everyone in the world would be much better off and have more secure futures, if HRC had not had the election stolen by criminals both within and outside our country.

Believing that means that, not only are you NOT really an investor, you may not even be very intelligent..
It's hard to be 100% wrong, but you have managed it... Good work, Dem...!!
Even if Trump were half as bad as the ignorant dems like to pretend, he saved the world by dumping crooked hillary. If he were to accomplish nothing else in his eight years, that is monumental in it's self. He saved the world from hillary and the democrats...

So, you created a poll, with one 'yes' option and the other 4 are essentially all 'no'.


Seems completely unbiased and non-partisan.

My personal fortunes don’t rise or fall based on the occupant of the White House.

Wouldn't'a made much difference, I guess.
I am happier not hearing her screech away every day, but I don't know if I'm exactly better off.

Illusory and temporary sugar high. As a business person, you should be well aware of the pitfalls of borrowing against the future - which is what our government is doing - big time:

Quote:
The deficit - the amount that Washington’s spending exceeds its revenues - will expand to $804 billion in fiscal 2018, which ends on Sept. 30, up from $665 billion in fiscal 2017, CBO said.

Real GDP will grow by 3.3 percent in 2018; 2.4 percent in 2019; and 1.8 percent in 2020, it said.

But those growth rates will not offset the deficits, which will “increase rapidly this year and over the next few years,” then stabilize, resulting in a projected cumulative deficit of $11.7 trillion for 2018-2027, CBO forecast.

The chickens are coming home to roost beginning next year. The erratic stock market, flat bond markets, and flattening of the yield curve are harbingers.

Suggest you look to cost-cutting now and build up your reserves. You will need them.

And, tell your employees to cut debt, live below their means, and save for a rainy day. Unemployment checks don't cover very much and, in some states, stop after only 12 weeks.

There are many stories in states affected by tariffs of business expansions now on hold, layoffs, and worse. Don't be fooled.

If you've been in business a while, I'm sure you know all these things - unless you are one of the lucky ones whose business is never affected by bad times.
