The "Obama economy". LOL. Obama presided over the most tepid "recovery" in modern history, but, to be fair, he inherited a hell of a mess. So, I think BOTH Obama and Trump get too much credit for a roaring economy. How long will it last? Nobody knows, but I suspect the immediate future is bright. I know leftists are hoping for the economy to tank, for that appears to be their only hope to get the Orange Man out of the White House.It's hard to predict what will happen this election cycle. The Obama economy keeps chugging along, despite the ongoing attempts on its life by the crazy policies and policy shifts we have had for the last few years. The economy should boost Trump, although I'm still not convinced the economy will hold up through the end of 2020. There are too many mixed signals, but then that's been going on for a while. So who knows.
Fewer people have access to healthcare. That seems to make Republicans happy for some reason. Trump claims he's protecting access, but his administration is doing the opposite. It's pure speculation to say whether the voting public is smart enough to figure this out.
I don't know about anybody else, but my tax rate went up a bit. That's not going to help the economy if it's across the board. People who expected a refund won't get what they thought, and people who owe will owe more. That takes money out of the system at an unfortunate time.
Sure, the brownshirts in the Senate, led by Moscow Mitch let the perp off. That doesn't mean he's not guilty, nor does it mean he learned anything. I expect that Susan Collins is done for due to her vote. Trump will strut and boast, but he does that even though he's got nothing to boast about. As far as other places the GOP might have issues, I fully expect all kinds of shenanigans. The GOP has long whined that the Democrats do this or that, when in fact they are the people who are doing it. So it goes.
Last nights debate was truly hilarious. IMO, NOBODY on that stage can beat Trump. Least of all Bernie the communist. While Bloomberg appeared shellshocked and unprepared, he made a few good points. If you held a gun to my head and said I had to vote for a Donk, it would be Bloomberg. At least he made is own money and is a capitalist, unlike the botched abortions like Sanders, Bootygieg, Amy and Quid Pro Joe.
