    Glad to know we now have the technology to determine the length and breadth of a recession. Man we have come a long way baby 👍

      Yep, and now the country will massively vote correctly. The criminal lier traitor occupying erroneously the WH isn’t fooling anyone anymore. The morons, racists, including hypocritical evangelicals, and some of the 1 % millionaires of the country are not enough to reelect the vulgar riff raff. November 2020 is coming, indictments will follow.

  7. “The Economy is fine, Nothing is wrong,Keep spending your money ” GWB-11/2007 . The Markets crashed 2008 taking a lot of people to bankruptcy court and erased a lot of 401k plans

    “The Tariffs are not hurting Americans But we will give farmers 16 billion dollars and everyone a tax cut on payroll.” Trump 2019 . Get ready people stash your money at home.

    So when they get done screwing us out of our money we will have no recourse nothing , Get ready. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

    first off The federal government takes very little taxes in payroll already so that change will be very minimal.
    2nd If no one is hurting why are you throwing 16 Billion dollars to farmers?
    anyone else see how the taxpayers have footed the bill for Wallstreet, Banks and corporations? did you also see that the common taxpayer did not get any bailouts?

  8. Wait, I thought he and Paul Ryan already did a “middle class tax cut?” I’m thinking his con is coming to an end and he’s looking for more snake oil to sell.

      Well if they are stupid enough to buy it the first time a lot will be stupid enough to buy it a second time. Even more if they have coupon.

    • Trump’s middle class tax cut allowed the rich to save an additional $93,000,000,000 in taxes. Guess who’s taxes made up for that? AND, this video reported the farmers are getting $18,000,000,000. Nope, they are getting $28,000,000,000. Guess where that money comes from?

    • @netzoned Not only that, the middle class got a nice hidden tax on them, called tariffs… Don the Con at work.

    • @Sam Brenna … He did not mention tariffs. But yes, that con man Trump keeps saying how China is paying for the tariffs. LOL And of course, the Trump swamp sheep eat it up. And, that $28,000,000,000 is temporary help. That is just to buy back the farmers votes. Trump will have to give them waaay more than that! Many have already gone bankrupt, or retired and closed their farms, which is basically the same thing. If those farmers vote for Trump again, they are complete idiots.

  9. As farmers go bankrupt, large corporations will step in buying up farms with low interest loans from friends in the banking world. So the 1% get even more wealth and the working man gets shafted.

  10. I guess if tou’re going to destroy Amarica might as well do a thorough job of it!

  11. Bye bye family farms. Corporations will take those tax savings and start buying them up.

    24 hours ago he literally tweeted that he is absolutely not considering a payroll tax cut.

  13. Last place Rebel | August 21, 2019 at 1:53 PM | Reply

    What the spare change form the rich tax cuts didn’t hit the 99% in the face.

  14. I’m still waiting on that promised 10% middle-class tax cut! LMAO

    • Chinese American | August 21, 2019 at 4:40 PM | Reply

      Then your kids will pay for your cut

    • well 12 billion went to a bailout for farmers last year and $16.5 billion more this month again to bailout more farmers and $4.6 billon for the wall and over $1  million every day wasted on the border.  Plus how many millions did that stupid 4th of July parade cost us tax payers.  The above is just billion off the top of my head

    • Lmaoooooooooooooooooooo

    • @Bob leroy Don’t forget when Dump plays golf that tax payers for it or when he goes oversea for government business the whole Dump family tags along with him. Again taxpayers pay for it. They Republican are born to rule. In fact Republicans are born to ruin.

  15. Sure, add another TRILLION to the national debt you promised to entirely pay-off. LMAO

  16. Sure, workers take home an extra $3.67 a week, national debt keeps climbing. Don’t be a chump. Vote.

    • National debt would rise under most candidates especiallly dems universal healthcare est 3trillion. Obama caused 4-6 trillion during 8 yrs trump 1 in three whilst you account for the cut in tax and balance w/increase in public investment. W/o meaningful cut back you will always have a deficit

    • Kathleen Blachere | August 22, 2019 at 6:08 AM | Reply

      Average person got squat when you account for rising fees from corps that got a PERMANENT tax break and didn’t pass it on but bought back their own stocks. Had to beg for a raise. Then there was the okee dokee on tax returns where you could no longer deduct certain things.

    • Kathleen Blachere | August 22, 2019 at 6:15 AM | Reply

      @lilkillars yeah…healthcare…what a useless cause. Trump is on track to do 4 trillion debt damage in his first term alone and had nothing like what Obama inherited from republicans. MILLIONS were loosing their jobs and homes. Auto industry belly up…greedy banks failing and economy worst since great depression. And let’s not forget the 2 wars Bush started while giving a tax break to the wealthiest and all while millions of baby boomers were about to retire. NOW they want to cut ss and Medicare because of THEIR. Stupidity. Given enough time…Trump will send us right back there.

    • Timmy the Poker Warrior | August 22, 2019 at 6:16 AM | Reply

      @lilkillars LOL at idiots who think their lies change reality.

  17. Wait.. I thought the economy was booming?? Best in our history??? Why do we need a payroll tax cut??

    • Kenneth Mitchell | August 21, 2019 at 7:27 PM | Reply

      basicems24 cause we have to pay for the farmers welfare checks and the wall that Mexico has yet to write a check for and the tax cut that the rich didn’t pay for North so much as a trickle. The only trump got wet with that and now his diaper needs to be changed.

    • ????????

    • Trump’s getting desperate, China has him over a barrel. Strange that we need tax cuts if we have such a strong economy, shouldn’t we be paying down the debt instead of doubling the deficit then? Must be Trumponomics, only taught at Trump University. For a guy that supposedly graduated from Wharton, he doesn’t seem to know squat about either business or economics. Love to see his tax returns, can you imagine how much other people’s money this guy loses each year?

    • Clearly all of you have an economics degree. Your economy can be booming and consumer spending drop. With all the reccession talk even though currently theres no recession may make ppl conservative with spending habits thus solution pay roll tax more cash flow more spend etc etc

    • Haha the sarcasim is real but the statement isnt incorrect. The economy is booming. Consumer spending has been healthy but predictions are scaring the market a payroll tax would simply increase consumer confidence. No one is actually taking into account globally the euro-brexit fiasco china russia etc are having such poor and mediocore growth it is affecting global growth

  18. Strongest economy in the history of the country, but we need to have an emergency payroll tax cut to prevent us from slipping into a recession that isn’t even remotely close to happening.

    • Plus bend over again when you file your taxes for 2019.  We have to pay more again every year.

    • @Bob leroy Great tax cut, eh Bob? And now, because Trump and his cult forgot that it is always the middle class that bails out the economy in late cycle by spending their tax cuts, Trump is high and dry. Oops! Better get that payroll tax in the works. After that proves to be insufficient it will be “helicopter money.” Take care.

  19. Please dont. Payroll tax funds Social secretary you cheaters. Thats an automatic cut to SS benefits. Tariffs, cutting Social security, Tax cuts for the rich… Impeach Trump

  20. The king of debt and bankruptcy is bring this country to a spiral downfall
