Ronald Reagan created over 20M jobs…growing the country’s real GDP by almost 30% in the process.
Those kind of results make one wonder why Dear Leader’s $800B porkfest would impress anybody, with his promised 3M new and “saved” jobs (whatever those are)… a paltry figure 17M jobs shy of Reagan’s towering accomplishment.
And of course Obama isn't creating Job One anyway, rather... we've lost millions of them...
Since President Reagen, the money made from the majority of the growth in US has gone to the top 10% wage earners. Too bad for you if you don't make over $113K annually. (http://seekingalpha.com/article/179907-2010-investing-a-tale-of-two-economies).
Rome wasn't built in a day..Regan was handed a budget that had a surplus and made it a deficet... Obama was handed a piece of crap.. Put things into context... Bush "Nero" left him a mess...
Bush was handed a piece of crap too. An economy based on business speculation fostered by the Clinton administration. You really believe that Clinton left a surplus? LOL
He left Bush a bubble and a "illusion" of a strong economy. LOL It all was inflated paper wealth that Greenspan promoted with Clinton's blessing to try to sway voters into electing a democrat again; Al Gore.
You think unwinding the dot com bubble was easy? Clinton gave wall street a taste of speculation, easy money and fast gains without regard to risk. Hard to change wall street after that, they moved to housing, then CDS, derivatives,and so on.
Thank Billy for all that.
We all know that the president has nothing to do with jobs anyway so what's the point?
sure he does, he has increased the size of the government to a point there are more Czars in the US that Russia ever had... Along with every Czar, comes an army of paper pushers in government offices that create economic activity out of thin air....
he's creating jobs, my buddy down the street owns the company that makes those really bright lights that go in the new stop lights, the man used some money to replace old with new, my buddy owns the #1 maker in the us of these bulbs, when supply was put up for bid, he lost, lost by over 20%. company from china got the gig with a bid that came in just under his production cost. see obama created some jobs in china with that bundle of US tax payer money. wtf
