*cough* Goldwater *cough*
They make claims about how “great” he is but NEVER give details as to why
What damage is that.
Then there is his destabilisation of the stock marke5 to the point where JP Morgan has created a “Volfefe index”. There is the disruption of international agreements, inability to negotiate on the international stage, inability to deal with problems like North Korea
Not to mention making a laughing stock of America
Pay gains during Trump’s first year in office best since the Great Recession
Workers looking for fatter paychecks had their best year in 2017 since before the financial crisis, according to a government report Wednesday.
That's who's paying the taxes:
The top 1 percent of income earners, those having an adjusted annual gross income of $480,930 or higher, pay about 39 percent of federal income taxes. That means about 892,000 Americans are stuck with paying 39 percent of all federal taxes.
Seriously, am I on Candid Camera?
If that is the case when election day comes, it will hurt Trump and the GOP, but there's time until then for Republicans to establish some protections for pre-existing conditions.
LoL @ "the destablisation of the stock market"
"inability" to deal with problems like North Korea. A problem that has been in place since the 1950's. LMFAO.
Exactly what is he repairing? He hasn't brought Iran, China, Russia, or North Korea to heel. He gave 85% of the tax cut to people making $400,000 per year, after he said we shouldn't cut rich folks' taxes. He hasn't fixed healthcare. He hasn't fixed our infrastructure. We're still in Syria and Afghanistan. Real income is stagnant. The economy is slowing down. He doubled the budget deficit. Nothing much done to retrain workers. K-12 education hasn't improved.
There you go! When things look bleak for your side, offering a mercy post to a fellow traveler is a welcome kindness.
It takes time to fix what others have been breaking for decades. He's making the attempt and much of it is successful.
The man sleeps with a supermodel, so he's capable of great things.
You the Democrats can do whatever you want, just try hard to do it less violently. Trying screaming into this sky lately? I heard, it really helps venting one’s frustration with Trump
And this is a reason we should elect Biden ?!?
Meanwhile, the only thing Democrats have done is vote themselves a raise and investigate the collusion story they manufactured.
For the record, in 2016 I voted Hillary.
Now, let’s look at our options so far:
Trump - loud mouth, insulting, too much twitter, some weird relationship with Russia (I don’t think it’s collusion per se, but there definitely is something going on). For good or bad - doesn’t always listen to his advisors (don’t forget about Bolton). Good things about Trump - he really is doing something about about China, he really fights illegal immigration (or at least really tries to do something about it), he does not mind telling other leaders, including allies inconvenient things and most of all - surprisingly, the economy is doing very well. There are two things I never agree with Reps, but willing to close my eyes on these issues - I think the feds should control higher education costs and contribute to paying for school for each class that was successfully finished, and I believe the US government should provide basic, high deductible HMO coverage to all residents for an income tax increase of 5%-10% per covered individual.
Now, Pocahontas - I despise people who pretend to be of another race, especially if they benefited from it politically and financially. And it’s not like she just told others what she was told by her parents - she stole a recipe and published it as an ancient Cherokee recipe. This shows that she is a nutcase in its own category.
Biden - he portrays himself as extension of Obama’s term. I think Obama’s domestic policies were tolerable (except for never ending racism), but his toothless foreign policies gave us the rise of aggressive Russia.
Sanders - I’m not so sure I want to consider a person who pretty much never worked on his life. There is no way he can have understanding of my everyday life.
So, considering the options, believe it or not, Trump is the lesser evil. Especially considering that he is a known evil and things just can’t get worse with his re-election.
I voted for Hillary - if Dems had someone who doesn’t advocate for reparations, doesn’t cry racism every 5 minutes and does not pounder to extreme left with identity politics then that candidate would get full consideration from me.
At least he has built a beautiful coast to coast wall and locked her up.
Here are the facts. Real wages are what they were when Trump took office. You were propagandized.
Trump said we shouldn't--and he wouldn't--give a personal tax cut to rich people.
What they tried to pull when the GOP held Congress wasn't good enough.
Exports to this country are less than 4% if their GDP. Trump doesn't have enough leverage to force their hand. He should have been working with allies.
Is he really fighting it when we don't have an effective e-verify system to root out illegal workers.?
What about her policies?
Total BS. She's an opportunist, not a nut job.
Biden would be more aggressive than Obama.
Read his personal history. He worked at a lot of different jobs.
Wrong. Things can get much worse.
Trump seems more and more deranged every day. This train wreck of an administration can't end soon enough.
Hard to believe Republicans and right wingers can't see the buffoon for the reality TV con-man that he is.
I suppose the very wealthy and the Republican political class don't want to kill the golden goose despite the gong show.
My side? Who are you talking about? I'm not a Democrat.
You write like a Leftist. Or are you that mythical beast: The Moderate?
Same source as yours (Bureau of Labor Statistics). You were propagandized.
"The Employment Cost Index, a measure of salary and benefit costs, registered a 2.6 percent gain for the full year, tied for the best since 2007, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported."
What the heck is a personal tax cut? He gave an across the board cut in taxes, so those who pay more saved more. That's fair.
Almost unintelligible. I'll take a stab at answering anyway: Trump was opposed by many NeverTrumpers and the eGOP when Republicans had the majority in the House, so many of the bills he'd have liked to have passed didn't have the support needed. Obama faced the same problem when he had the majority.
What is he even trying to fix?
Do you think Casanova would be sleeping with a supermodel if he made $80,000 a year?
No, I don't. Leftwingers talk about "task forces" and "coalitions."
I'm a fiscal conservative and social liberal.
How is Biden crazy?
"Sources' (unnamed) say it, so it must be so.... Trump says stupid things. That ain't a news flash for anybody.
American infrastructure, getting us out of foreign wars, reducing government regulations, building the wall, lowering taxes, rebuilding the military, getting more jobs for minorities, etc. etc. It's a full plate.
No, if you're making that kind of money, you end up with Michelle Obama.
Separate names with a comma.
