Isn't that what Republicans are supposed to do, take a good economy and ruin it? Trump will be the odd man out if he doesn't crash a Democrat's good economy. Face it, fat cats get upset when everybody has a little money in their pockets. It makes their money worth less and less.

The two hardest things to do is; make money and not spend money. If you want to survive a Republican economic crash try to do both while there is a Republican in office.

the last recession was due to liberal policies

Maybe we don't need to add more jobs since a million are going unfilled at the moment.

Just remember GOP, the coming recession is ENTIRELY your own doing. Even after a Dem gets in office in 2021 and there is a recession it will be entirely because of the previous administration and his protracted trade wars with multiple countries and no exit strategies.

But for most of America the boom missed us. We are all working but there is not much to show for it after taxes, utilities, healthcare, insurance, housing, and other required fixed cost are taken care of. This economy feels like it remained in a "spiritual" recession where the numbers and the "feel" don't match.


My investments are doing well but I have been nervous about this economy for 4 years now wondering if the "Real economy" is actually healthy. Because I learned in 2008 that years of gains can be wiped out in a single bad quarter and it takes years to recover.
"The stock market has been great"?. Its been going sideways for 18 months now.

The stable genius is off to a good start. These tariffs are making farmers bankrupt. Should the tariffs take effect in Mexico, they will cost just Texans as much as $100 billion. That's what my neighbors get for voting for a man who went bankrupt four times. Hopefully the economy will be able to withstand all this winning Trump is doing

As long as Trump is in office, money doesn't matter--he has no qualms about wasting taxpayer money. But, he is putting pressure on the Fed to help him out and lower interest rates (which usually is not done in good economies). Lower interest rates because of one bad jobs report? If they don't cave, he will make their lives miserable and harass them to death.

For the most part, if you don't have a job now, it's because A) you don't want one or B) you don't have any skills or C) you are a difficult employee.

He is the first president in YOUR life who actually looks out for the American taxpayer dollar. I assume they don't tell you that on CNN though.

How are the tariffs doing that exactly? Trump is raising your taxes.
