    The economy was stagnant under Obama. It is now starting to heal. Trump has now had 2 consecutive quarters above 3% GDP. When did Obama do that?

    Based on what? What evidence is there that this will happen? Not that the MRP hopes it will happen, but that it will actually happen.

    News flash. Obama was busy digging our asses out of the trash heap that Bush left and then was prevented from making policy by your heroes in the GOP from 2010 on.
    Every attempt at jump starting was met with obstruction from a GOP congress. From proposed new start ups to infrastructure bills. Don't you understand how it all works yet?

    The only proof out there is for the exact opposite to happen. But so long as the big guns get what they feel entitled to it doesn't really matter. They can and will come after real entitlements like SS and V.A. Medicare, Medicaid etc to pay for it all.

    The democrats lied to Reagan and kept spending. The economy soared after Reagan tax cuts and stopped the Carter recession[/QUOTE]

    Bullshit!

    Yes, kind of like going out and buying a more expensive house or car and telling your boss to pay you less, because he needs the money more than you do, so he can build another mansion for himself and hoping maybe he'll maybe donate a little to help you out, when you discover you need MORE money, not less to pay for the MORE expensive car or home you purchased.

    The "cycle" combined with the exploitation of less informed, less intelligent people, has worked well for neo republicans. They increase spending, then cut taxes on the promise the tax cuts will "trickle down" via some voodoo spell. They get "just enough" unthinking people to put them in power, just long enough to direct the flow of money to themselves (the already wealthy) on promises it will stimulate the economy. When it does the opposite, then then blame it on the opposition that is elected because tax cuts for the wealthy, as always, fail and cause more debt for the nation. Neo republicans pull back of regulations also mean an overheated economy, built on things like loans to people who could not afford to pay them back for over inflated properties. Without regulation other people were defrauding their fellow Americans and government, overcharging them for all manner of things, because they could and because regulations against doing so, were removed. When the economy goes to hell, as it had in the end of the 80's, the early 90's and 2008, the drill has been to blame Democrats........and begin the "cycle" all over again, always hoping there are "just enough" unthinking, uniformed, ill informed, propaganda informed, people to believe Democrats caused it all.

    It has already started with 2 quarters above 3% GDP. The US has the highest corporate tax in the world. Lowering that will help the economy
