It was two years ago when Moscow Mitch McConnell, and Lyin Paul Ryan pushed Trump’s “tax reform” bill through congress. What effect did it have on America’s economy? It’s nothing like the result promised by lying Republicans.
The wealthy are placing more money in offshore accounts. There have been zero good paying jobs created by another Republican’s belief in trickle-down economics; and less than expected overall. The middle class experienced a tax increase to pay for the wealthy. Thanks to a huge cut in corporate taxes, the national deficit is growing at a faster rate than at any other time in history. That includes the George W. Bush administration which deregulated banks, and placed our nation in two unwinnable wars resulting in the great recession of 2008.
Let’s be completely honest here. Republicans always fail the working class. Their economic policies have a negative effect on most Americans. History proves that the majority experience a better quality of life when Democrats are in control of our government.
When Trump brags about the economy, know that he is hailing the accomplishments of President Barrack Obama. He hasn’t had time to accomplish anything, he’s too busy golfing, partying at Mar-a-Lago, and watching Fox Noise. All of his failed decisions are the result of a “whim.”
Trump continues to live the life of a billionaire at taxpayer expense. His “work day” averages just under three hours. An old, white, obese man who never worked a full day in his life will not change.
