There have been many over the last few months, including the man himself, who have put forward the cockamamie notion that the economic boom that is currently underway has everything to do Barry ‘O’ and absolutely nothing to do with President Trump. And it was as recently as this past Friday that Barry once again tried to claim credit for the many economic success of President Trump. This would be the same ex-president who mocked candidate Trump’s promises on jobs back in 2016. He taunted Trump saying, “What magic wand do you have?”
The reality is that Democrats, including Barry ‘O’, have long opposed every single policy that is responsible for our current economic boom. For instance:
Tax cuts: Democrats unanimously opposed the Republican tax cuts that Trump signed into law last year, which lowered the corporate tax rate to an internationally-competitive 21% and lowered tax rates for the middle class as well as high earners. Under Barry, Democrats tried to reverse all of the Bush tax cuts in 2012, and Republicans fought them until the very edge of the “fiscal cliff” — until the president and his party agreed to allow Bush’s tax cuts for the middle class to become permanent.
Deregulation: As soon as Trump took office, Republicans used the Congressional Review Act to toss out many regulations that Barry had neglected to notify Congress about before leaving office. The president also used executive orders to reverse or simplify many rules that Barry’s administration had implemented that were obstacles to investment and economic growth.
Obamacare fixes: Obamacare was a major drag on the economy in two ways. First, it imposed an individual mandate that forced everyone to buy health insurance — often at expensive prices. Second, it created new uncertainty in the economy, since investors anticipated that Barry’s administration would follow through on promises to regulate other industries. The GOP repealed the individual mandate — over unanimous Democrat opposition — and the Trump administration relaxed the rules on Obamacare to allow individuals to buy simpler and cheaper short-term plans rather than expensive Obamacare plans. Partly as a result, premiums are growing slowly. The Associated Press reported Friday that some people will pay less next year.
Energy: Barry quite literally tried to shut down the coal industry, tried to stop the Keystone XL pipeline, and discouraged oil and gas drilling. Yet the strongest economic growth during his tenure came from the booming oil shale industry, which created many new jobs while keeping fuel prices low for the economy as a whole. Republicans immediately reversed his policies, allowing the energy sector to grow even more — though Barry continued to target “corporate polluters” in his speech Friday.
Spending caps: Though fiscal discipline is not exactly a priority of the current Congress, Republicans forced Democrats to accept spending caps after taking the House in 2010. That restraint arguably helped restore a sense of economic stability.
Undeterred, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are running on promises to raise taxes, restore regulations, expand Obamacare into “Medicare for all,” limit fossil fuels, and spend more on government programs. A box of “magic wands.” There can be no doubt whatsoever that the Democrat Party of 2018 is dedicated to the destruction of not only the middle-class and blue collar workers from coast to coast, but the complete destruction of America and by any means necessary. And if they are successful in their effort to regain control of Congress, that will be their mission.
So as we can very plainly see, as evidenced by his speech from last Friday, Barry ‘O’s narcissism and pathological lying are both still very much alive and well. Thank you Lord that we were able to survive his attempts to destroy our country and for the fact that we were allowed to dodge a sizable bullet back in 2016 with the defeat of his chosen successor, Hitlery. Barry remains to this day a liar, a racist, and a man who cannot be trusted. He is 100% involved in the conspiracy against Trump, just as he is a supporter of Antifa, BLM violence and is corrupt to his core.
There is no doubt that Democrats are counting on their low-information followers to not understand how a free market works. Most of these folks have come to believe that government is the heart of any economy so they are unable to comprehend how Trump’s actions would be of any benefit. We all know that the Democrat Party is the party of slavery, Jim Crow, the KKK, segregation and more recently wide open borders and sanctuary cities. They will never support policies of freedom and liberty for each American. They only support anti-America, tyrannical agendas.
The Democrats, led by Barry ‘O’, don’t really want to see any improvement in the economy because that would show to everyone just how well free-market capitalism works, and creates the greatest opportunity and prosperity for the greatest number of people. These creatures of the left favor the government controlling all of the wealth the responsibility of selecting the winners and losers, and to then dole the wealth out accordingly. Just look how well that worked for the former Soviet Union or Cuba, Venezuela or Nicaragua. They’re all doing just great, right?
I remember how Hitlery once claimed that the economy “ALWAYS” does better when there is a Democrat in the White House. But if the eight years during which we were made to endure Barry ‘O’s hardcore leftwing economic policies showed us anything it that it’s just the opposite that is so very true. But as we have seen that hasn’t stopped them from trying to take credit for our current economic successes, and there will continue to be those Democrats who actually believe that they somehow all stem from those very same leftwing economic policies.
The Democrats seek to destroy America, such as it is, then act as if they are the great saviors to rise like the phoenix with a new government framework under socialism. While I hope I am wrong, I believe the time is coming where Americans will be forced to take up arms. Obviously the left believes this as well. Democrats have a vested interest in high numbers of people without good jobs and dependent on government. To vote for anything that would improve the economy, especially the lot of working class American citizens, takes away votes for the socialist/progressive agenda.
Let’s face it, regardless what the Democrats, or any of their many minions, may say, a strong American economy is something that is not in their best interest. Because the more people able to find a job means fewer will on welfare and therefore more difficult to control. Democrats are losing their slave class, hence their panic. And it’s odd, don’t you think, that Barry ran on a platform of “you didn’t build that” and yet wants to take credit for the economy’s current success. He spent eight years blaming Bush for the economy and now wants to take credit for Trump’s economy.
