Yes. This finally does it. Up till now I thought he was just very misunderstood.
How about that deficit though!? Nearly doubled since taking over. Trump doing what he does best. It was $587B at end of Obama’s presidency (and dealt with the Great Recession no big deal). Now it’s $1T. But hey, those tax cuts for the super wealthy and corporations are really paying off.
Seems to kinda grow every year...
Add that to his escalation of tensions with Iran by pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal and what a wonderful guy he is.
Maybe you should look a little closer at the chart? It (the deficit) definitely does not kinda grow every year.
The GDP does though.
GDP mostly does (the chart shows it going down in 2009).
I was not looking way back there. Big up tick last year though.
One thing Clinton got right: it's the economy, stupid...
Yep, my bad.
Since 1981, the deficit has grown under every republican pres and shrunk under ever dem pres.
I wish someone could help me understand this. I'm TERRIBLE at this kind of thing!
I wouldn't be opposed to a national 1-cent sales tax exclusively going towards reducing the deficit.
Why not walk back that huge tax cut that trump gave to the ultra wealthy and large corporations? Make them pay, not the rest of us.
I'm not opposed to some of that, either.
Well that's provably false.
For some strange reason, I could see a Biden & Bernie ticket.
