      *7 Facts That Show Obama’s Economic Recovery Has Been AWFUL*
      Aug 2016 https://www.dailywire.com/news/7-facts-show-obamas-economic-recovery-has-been-aaron-bandler

      *President Barack Obama and recently coronated Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton touted the Obama economic recovery at the Democratic National Convention last week, despite the fact that the statistics show that the Obama recovery has been horrid. Here are seven facts proving this.*

      1. The Obama recovery has had a record number of quarters where economic growth has been two percent or lower.

      2. The average real GDP growth of recoveries rate prior to the Obama recovery was 4.3 percent. If the Obama recovery had been right in line with that 4.3 percent, the country would be $2.2 trillion richer today, according to Investor’s Business Daily. The editors at IBD explain further: (emphasis bolded)

      3. The most recent labor participation rate was 62.7 percent, with slightly more than 94.5 million Americans out of the work force. Back in September, the participation rate was 62.3 percent–the lowest in nearly 40 years.

      4. The number of jobs created under the Obama economy has not kept up with the working age population. Obama and Clinton have claimed that there have been nearly 15 million jobs in the private sector created under Obama, and if that number is taken at face value, it doesn’t quite come close to the growth of the working age population of 15.8 million at around the same time frame. But the job gap is likely worse than that.

      5. There has been a decline in business startups and investment. According to Time, there has been a decline of “entrepreneurial activity” from 14 percent in 2014 to 12 percent in 2015, when the four preceding years featured positive growth. In May 2015, The Wall Street Journal‘s Thomas J. Duesterberg and Donald A. Norman described capital investment as “historically weak,” citing the burdensome corporate tax rates and regulations as the reason for the weak amount of investment. This is an important metric since investment is one of the key forces behind economic growth.

      6. There has also been a decline of real household family income. According to Conservative Review, the decline went from $57,000 in 2007 to $53,700 in 2014. Naturally, it follows that the home ownership rate has declined to a near 48-year low.

      7. There has also been a spike of Americans on food stamps. Conservative Review also used data from the Congressional Budget Office to show that the number of Americans food stamps has increased from 26.5 million in 2007 to 44.5 million in 2016. That is a decline from 47.7 million in 2013, but still much higher than pre-recession levels.

      @chameleon habitat So sad. I realize politicians/advisors want to get something on the market as fast as possible, but how many shortcuts were taken? And, how much money went into politicians/investors pockets? Hmmm, wonder what will happen to the markets come Monday?

    Remdesivir! The same Remdesivir & Regeneron & Hydroxychloroquinine, bleach & UV Ultra White Nationalist Bright Light tReatments, snake oil salesman Donald tRump was pushing!

  5. trump prediction: “the coronavirus would weaken when we get into april (2020), in the warmer weather – that has very negative effect on that, and that type of virus.

    american reality: as of october (2020) in america there are 8+ million covid-19 cases & 218,000+ deaths.

    trumps promise: claimed he would be able to clear the country’s then national debt of 19 trillion dollars.

    american reality: 4 years into trump’s presidency the us national debt has ballooned by more than a third, now at 27 trillion dollars in october (2020)

    trumps promise: claimed to be able to boost economic growth 3.5% per year on average

    american reality: he never surpassed 3% growth any year of his 1st term of presidency plus he never achieved any progress on lowering unemployment has been demolished by the pandemic due to trump and his administratins mishandling of the covid-19 crisis. which now has established the worst recession since the great depression.

      In a few places in the world they drain real cobra juice into a shot glass and drink it. Supposedly it makes a man feel more loving. I don’t know. I’ll pass.

    Trump never had covid hes lying he just had the flu.

  8. Just goes to show you how little trump doctors know

  9. Well, well, well. I have said from the beginning the LOSER, tRump didn’t have the virus. Do other people really believe he did. I think Hicks had it. Apparently Christie must have had it. Just not sure tRump did. There was a super spreader at Barrett’s fiasco. Just not sure who it was. GET RID OF tRump.

      @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 = PAID TROLL that is a special kind of stupid . Pssssst this is 2020 NOT 2016 , TROLL

    • Unless you’re talking about the consequences of not wearing a mask. Then Trump all of a sudden had big time Covid. And if I remember correctly, he was so sick that he couldn’t get up and needed a green screen to fake it. But when he walks out safe…he didn’t have covid. Good job guys. Go the Left!

      @Dave Schultz the one he got is the 3rd identified mutation in the US, it is not longer a China-virus, it is a TrumpVirus because it would not have come into being had he enforced cdc guidelines nations wide.

    Richard Nixon — 76
    George W. Bush — 16
    Bill Clinton — 2
    Jimmy Carter — 1
    Barack Obama — 0

  13. Wow, Trump is lying? Say it isn’t so!

  14. Dunno Jinx Trump: HCQ works. Disinfectants work. The vaccine will be ready soon.

  15. Don’t believe research. Believe a president who doesn’t read.

  16. 45’s a walking time bomb. Whatever combo he received will wear off. He’s temporary.

  17. I”m not conspiratorial, but 4 years of this administration has left be skeptical. I wouldn’t doubt if Trump has stocks in some of the companies like Gilead.

    So the drug trump took that he said “cured” him turns out to be crap. Sounds about right.

    • Remember MSDNC have a Black Belt in B.S. Time to remove your head that`s feeding from their Silo of misinformation.

      @Lennard Kahn here you are again. Welcome friend.

    • @Lennard Kahn MSNBC didn’t conduct the study; they’re simply reporting what the study found. You obviously believe any news that doesn’t agree with your biased and ignorant view of the world must be misinformation.
