One thing is certain, the current crop of Democrats would run the economy over the cliff and need to be bailed out by a Republican Congress again.
So in your opinion if the economy goes south its the Democrats fault? as usual republicans take responsibility for nothing, if things are going good its chest pounding time if things are going bad its some one elses fault.

Failed tariff policies plunging a large number of farmers into bankruptcy with some resorting to suicide. Over 7,000 business went belly up in the last year. More good jobs gone, but give Trump credit, he did create more service jobs that pay lower wages and most with little or no benefits. Trump gave corporations and his rich buddies over a trillion dollars and you, the working average American worker, will pay for it. Under trump no a dime spent on infrastructure. How do you like those potholes? Sooner or later we will have a major bridge collapse with numerous casualties. Trump has blown more money on his gold outings that any president before him, but you don't mind paying, do you? Trump charges full price to our government when he golfs at one of his golf courses. Doesn't matter, Trump and his daughter have used their position to expand and reap greater profits on their private businesses.

We are now in Trump economic policies and on recession's doorstep. We can only hope that electing Trump does not put us into a depression.


if trump left Obama's regs and policies intact, Obama could claim some credit, that was not the case


what exactly did Obama do to save the economy????? shovel ready jobs? cash for clunkers? obamacare? force banks to take loans they did not need? bypass congress with suffocating regs? mandate technologies that did not yet exist to smother industries it did not support?


a parrot could have done what Obama did.


the US economy was at a low point in its natural cycle. Obama had been sitting in the chair on its upcycle, then he put his boot on the neck of the economy. It was crystal clear the economy would explode when Obama's boot was removed.


no recession in sight. same economic gurus who said it was impossible to do what trump has done, now predict a recession. more liberal nighttime fantasies extended into daydreams.

The Dims controlled the House and Senate when the economy crashed in 2007 so they deserve 2/3 of the blame. Right now, they control Congress so to the extent the government causes the economy to crash, they would deserve 1/3 of the blame....see logical, and not like Dims that give Dims credit when they don't deserve it and blame Repubs when they don't deserve it.

Unthinkable.
It appears you were too young to understand the mess the country was in prior to Reagan. Yes, he didn't do a good job on the AIDS crisis but it is pretty easy to find a poorly addressed crisis in any administration. By the way, AIDS has nothing to do with the Reaganomics topic. If you graduated and couldn't find a job perhaps it was your major (or location) that was actually the problem. I'm was an engineer at that time and had no issues at all finding a job after moving from Ohio to a state that was in better economic condition (NC).
