      *Obama changed the face of our economy for the worse*
      Oct 2016 https://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/economy-budget/299881-obama-changed-the-face-of-our-economy-for-the-worse

      *Question: What do Hong Kong, Singapore, Chile, Ireland and Estonia have in common?*

      Answer: They all have more economic freedom than the United States.

      According to the 2016 edition of the Index of Economic Freedom — compiled annually by the Wall Street Journal and The Heritage Foundation — America has matched its lowest global ranking ever at #11, its seventh decline in the past eight years. Measuring such factors as rule of law, regulatory efficiency, limited government, and open markets, they conclude, “The United States remains mired in the ranks of the ‘mostly free,’ the second-tier economic freedom status into which it dropped in 2010.”

      Many believe we’ve arrived at this state of affairs due to the nature America’s mixed economy—capitalism coupled with government controls—and its nexus with President Barack Obama’s eight years of collectivist ideas and policies into American life and the economy. The result: Obama and his administration have upset, perhaps in some respects irrevocably, the tenuous balance between private enterprise (free markets, productivity, entrepreneurial growth, etc.) and the countervailing winds of government coercion and intervention.

      Certainly one of the primary culprits in this dynamic is the blizzard of regulations imposed under Obama. As reported by Sam Batkins of the American Action Forum (AAF), the Obama presidency has implemented 600 major regulations—defined as regulations that have “an economic impact of $100 million or more”—and is on track to enact 641 major regulations before he leaves office. This figure shatters the 426 regulations under President George Bush and represents a new major regulation every three days—according to Batkins costing, “on average, $1.4 billion . . . With the possibility of 50 more rules, the lame duck tally could push this regulatory cost figure to $813 billion . . . more than the GDP of the Philippines.”

      Faced with these and other findings, Obama remains obdurate and combative—offering kingly declarations in response: “By almost every measure, we are better off than when I took office” and “Anyone claiming that America’s economy is in decline is peddling fiction.” These assertions fly in the face of the numerous non-fictions he simply refuses to acknowledge: a labor participation rate near a 40-year low (including a record number of women); his single-handed accumulation of more debt (at $19.5 trillion and counting) than every other president before him combined;46 million Americans living in poverty and nearly 50 million on food stamps; his presidency overseeing a record number of home foreclosures; as well as America’s credit rating downgraded for the first time ever . . . the litany goes on. Is it any wonder that trust in Obama’s leadership and his administration remains at historically low levels? After almost eight years of government corruption, ever-expanding spending and taxation, bloating of the administrative state, and governance repeatedly highlighting racial, social and religious divisions, the once unassailable belief in America as the freest, strongest, noblest, most prosperous nation in history has been supplanted by a vision of ourselves that we do not recognize and from which we may never recover.

      Obama’s insistence on government being increasingly involved in the country’s private sector’s economic decision-making has inevitably given rise to more and more lobbyists, more special interest groups, more political influence, and more crony capitalism—which makes a mockery of his pledge to create an “unprecedented level of openness” and his claim that his administration has been “the most transparent administration in history.” His proof? Every visitor who comes to the White House is now a part of the public record.

      Given Obama’s lineage, his mentors and political influences, his controversial friends and associations, his background as a community organizer and neighborhood economic developer, should we be surprised that he is a man who knows only how to slice up the pie, rather than grow the pie? It is who he is. It’s in his DNA. He can’t help himself.

      Is it only a matter of time before America slides down to the next lower level of the economic freedom index and joins the ranks with Poland, Barbados, Albania, Rwanda, Namibia, Guatemala, Italy, Slovenia, and others—as “moderately free”?

    • @David Drake Never! GOP is a vile in US politics. Corrupt!!

    • DeSantis, Scott, Rubio, and Trump: Putin’s Patriots hard at work ! Doing all they can to stop voters !

      *SIMPLY THE WORST=> Obama is First President Ever to Not See Single Year of 3% GDP Growth*
      April 2016 https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/04/simply-worst-obama-first-president-ever-not-see-single-year-3-gdp/

      *The rate of real economic growth is the single greatest determinate of both America’s strength as a nation and the well-being of the American people.*

      On Thursday the Commerce Department announced that the US economy expanded at the slowest pace in two years. GDP growth rose at an anemic 0.5% rate after a paltry 1.4% fourth quarter advance.

      Ronald Reagan brought forth an annual real GDP growth of 3.5% .
      Barack Obama will be lucky to average a 1.55% GDP growth rate.

      *This ranks Obama as the fourth worst presidency on record.*

      Barack Obama will be the only U.S. president in history who did not deliver a single year of 3.0% + economic growth.

    • 😂😂😂…. I knew he reminded me of something!

    • 😂

    • Like a alcoholic fat boss baby. Swollen face big bulbous nose textbook physical symptoms of a drunk or a heavy drinker . Notice he also talks with his small fat hands just like his idol.

    • @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 l think you are mistaken. Trump inherited a booming economy from Obama, and he did like he does all things fiscal: he trashed it. Those 6 bankruptcies are not from the mind of a stable genius. They are from the disorganized mind of a completely incompetent fool.

    So…Florida hasn’t gotten any better with voting since the Bush/Gore debacle. Sad for Floridians….

    Be thankful you are not a Texan, their Govenor has screwed all voters there and it’s a Red state, ha ha Trump supporters in Texas.

    • Courtney Scott | October 6, 2020 at 6:26 PM | Reply

      @Tiger lily It will if they lose their elections in that state and he will be prosecuted according to the state law, if not federal law!!!

    • Courtney Scott | October 6, 2020 at 6:26 PM | Reply

      @imiss toronto Exactly!!!

    • Not all, Red counties in texas get 1 poll location for absentee ballots even though their county has 1000 residents, Harris county that is Blue with over 1 million citizens gets 1 poll location also. Their county is larger than the state of Rhode Island and the Texas Governor removed all “extra” locations. Totally legit, right? I’ll never vote for a Republican again, I’m so disgusted I switched parties this year.

    • @MMShaggy Such obvious corruption. It blows my mind that they can get away with stuff like that. Hopefully that “rule” gets overturned before the election.

    • The Zombie Whisperer | October 6, 2020 at 7:47 PM | Reply

      @imiss toronto I hope

  5. DeSantis is rotten. He learned that jamming up the unemployment website prevents people from making claims. Now the same with registering to vote.

    Crooked DeSantis! Florida has endless voting “accidents”!

    • There are a shocking number of voting-related “accidents” happening right now and 5 of 8 Supreme Court Justices seem to be totally cool with upholding new voter-suppression laws. Guess which 5… 🤔

  7. Don’t bury the lede. DumbSantis extended the deadline because the state’s registration system broke.

    All the voting issues in the states with Republican Governors and republican senates are all based on corruption and voter suppression. The Repugnicant party

    The more Americans who vote, the STRONGER our Great Nation will be.

  11. They are just doing that to give Trump voters even more time to get their mail in votes in!

    • Probably bc most of them are still in the hospital fighting the fake hoax corona. You know, letting it dominate them. 😂

    • Life is full of risks and danger, you can either grow some balls and stop being such a hysterical pussiy or just stay home in your basement until all risk of dying is gone.

  12. His Term will NOT be extended!

    This goes to show, whatever state you live in, do not leave it to the last minute.

    Register early, vote early, make sure you do it properly! This election is too important for you not to vote

    • My family turned in our absentee ballots the day we received them.

    • Republican states like this purge registration lists all the time and so lots of times people think they are registered and don’t realize they got purged. They do all types of bs suppression tactics. No party who thinks they have the will of the people behind them or thinks they are acting in peoples interest would try and suppress voting as much as republicans do. They take resources out of Democratic districts or districts with lots of minorities and understaff those districts so the lines get really long too.

    • Chris Willis Well Said and So true. 👍👏

  14. I was born and raised in Florida until I was 22 years old and lived in Alaska for 30 years and I have returned and this state is a s******* environmentally and politically it’s a suicide state

    • Every day 1000 people move to Florida ,most from Democratic Cities and States . They are turning Florida Blue .

  15. For those of you old enough and fans of SNL’s Church Lady: “How convenient!” That said, DeSantis is the mini-me version of our conman-in-chief (aka Dr. Evil).

  16. DeSantis looks like a guilty kid trying to explain how he wasn’t responsible for cracking the vase.

  17. Everyone should have the right to vote, period!

  18. Republicans are as good as the Russians in Election Interference.

  19. Trump just tried to coerce us
    “No stimulus until after election”
    Wow guys. This is literally exactly what he did in Ukraine .
