Ms. Boop,

No, but the good food and drink at high class eating establishments, the nice house, and vacations, the nice car, entertainment, sporting events, concerts, servants to clean up after you and all the toys money buys does....;)

Too bad we have such a lowlife in the White House while the Stock Market does so well. Also, too bad everyone doesn't benefit when the Market goes up.

There was basically zero interest rates during much of Obama's reign of error. Since Trump was elected the Feds raised interest rates seven times beginning in December 2016; until they finally started lowering them again this year.

Had Trump had the same benefit of low rates as Øbama had the economy would likely have grown at least 1% more than it has; IOW instead of 2.9% in 2018 it would have been at least 3.9%.[/QUOTE]

The market didn't recover to 2007 levels until we were into Obama's second term, and didn't do much from there.

Your 401k didn't back to its 2007 value until Obama's second term, his record sucked.
