You say this as if it somehow makes a valid point. It doesnt. No different than saying someone needed help after a car crash.

hahahaha Europe didn't practice austerity and you have no proof. Some idiot who was wrong about the economy tell you that?

btw Not many Republicans care about austerity and never have.

The danger was having the progressive government get involved in the economy. They were the ones who ruined it.

Obamacare is an expensive disgrace

Why Because you said so? lol You don't even know what austerity is.


At what cost? Maybe government can bail me out when I make a bad decision?
Expensive disgrace? It was based on the idea of personal responsibility. Ask newt

I love how the right loves to disown the personal mandate.... I guess they prefer uninsured deadbeats showing up to hospitals instead.

GOP had 7 years before trump came to office to figure out repeal and replace... What did they do? CHOKE

Um... Trump is putting CONSTITUTIONALIST judges in federal courts. The Dems are trying desperately to fight against that. They don't want to abide by the US Constitution.

What about all of the Trump advisers and prominent GOP politicians like Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum blaming the mass shootings on the lack of prayer in school? What about people like David Barton, the brains behind the modern Christian Right, who convincingly make the case that the First Amendment only applies to Protestant Christianity? What about all the GOP controlled state legislatures that are passing laws mandating schools offer Bible classes and that "In God We Trust" is displayed in every classroom? What about the Republican platform that very clearly calls for the reversal of Roe v Wade and Obergefell v Hodges?

The economy does not simply change over with the inauguration of an new president. There is about a two year carry over from the previous president. In this care that would be Obama. The success of the US economy for the first two year of Trump's presidency goes to the Obama administration. This year we are seeing the Trump Effect, so sad. Trump has lost the US farmer their major crop buyer. The stock market is reacting to Trump's failed tariff wars. Last year over 7,000 businesses went belly up. The US is on recession's door step.
Good manufacturing jobs have gone overseas but replaced with service jobs. Yes sir, under Trump there are plenty jobs that barely pay the minimum and have no benefits. You can always go to work for Walmart. They will start you at $11.50/hr unfortunately that is for a 28 hr week and no benefits. No worry. With that low of pay you qualify for Medicaid and food stamps that is paid by US taxpayers. Thank you mr Trump.

I am not a big fan of the democratic party but compared to how the republican party has pillaged the US under Trump the democrats are the last hope of hard working Americans.

No one person can destroy the party. The Clintons were an attempt at moderation by the party, they were Republican-Lite.

The Democratic Party is still the best option and the leadership today is more committed than ever toward representing and defending ordinary hard working Americans.

Democrats in the 1990s were in crisis. They had lost the last 3 presidential elections.

The USSR had collapsed and China had liberalized its economy. It was no longer believed that command economies could work as well as market economies.

And union membership was declining due to the pressures of automation and foreign competition. This was critical because unions funded most of the Democratic party until the 1990s.

The Clintons found a new source of cash by cozying up to corporate America. That the working class would be sacrificed through this relationship was acceptable, especially since the working class had turned on the Democrats by voting for Reagan.

Maybe a quarter of Democrats are true blue liberals.

The rest of the party is an amalgamation of social outgroups with little in common. It's been this way since the early 20th century.

It's hard for Democrats to be ideologically pure because so many of their constituent groups have conflicting interests.

The best way to paper over these differences is with patronage politics. That requires money the "party of the common man" struggles to raise without making serious compromises.
