LOL.

Well, there was the Economic Stimulus Package which cut taxes, extended unemployment benefits, and funded public works projects. Then there was the American Recovery And Reinvestment Act which pumped $250 billion into the economy, which lead to a 3.9 GDP by early 2010. He signed the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform Act to protect us from this happening again.

You can spin it any way you want, but Obama did better all around.

Trump the other day was talking about how his administration has crated 3.4 million new jobs in the past eighteen months. And that sounds impressive. However, during the last eighteen months of Obama's administration they had created 3.7 million jobs. This is the Republican standard - claiming the economy was bad under Obama, but much better under Trump. That's not true. It's good under Trump, but just not as good as it was under Obama.

I'm going make sure this next statement stand out.

Trump walked into office with a perfect economy, increased our deficit by 32% in one year, and still can't match Obama's numbers.

Umm the"economic stimulus" legislation was written in congress BEFORE Obama was even in office. It was written by congressional leaders.

And again with the smoke screen. Let's assign credit to everyone EXCEPT Obama.

Introduced in the House on January 26, 2009
Passed the House on January 28, 2009
Passed the Senate on February 10, 2009
Signed into law by President Barack Obama on February 17, 2009

Wasn't this something Republicans were dead set against? And wasn't this something Obama supported before he was in the oval office?

Yes. Written by two Democrats. And... Signed into law by Obama in 2009.

What has Trump done for the economy? He walked into office with a great economy, increased the deficit bigly, and still can't match Obama numbers. Trump recently celebrated the GDP, which was higher under Obama. WTF?

that has nothing to do with the fact the legislation was created by the legislative branch not Obama.

If these are the rules, than no president should ever get credit for anything because they don't actually write laws, they just sign them.

I am well aware of how things work. What I am saying is that if we play by these rules nobody can say things like: "Trump cut taxes." Trump didn't do shit but sign a paper. Congress cut taxes. Bush didn't invade Iraq, Congress did. Obama didn't make Obamacare, Congress did.

All I am pointing out is that traditionally a president gets credit for things that they sign and that happen under their administration.

The president is basically a coach on a sports team. If they win, the coach gets the credit. If they lose, the coach takes the blame even though the couch never plays a minute of the game.

I'm not giving trump credit for any of that and never have.

the legislative branch is responsible for legislation including legislation that impacts the economy. I don't fall for the baloney when the president signs legislation and high5s himself for signing it. that's how the system is supposed to work, the potus is NOT supposed to get in the way of legislation passing.

The President plays a part in all of this. Sometimes a much bigger part than other times, but they do play a big role. In the end, they aren't just supposed to sit by and let the legislative branch do as they please. There is a reason the POTUS has veto power.

That said, I get what you are saying when it comes to who should get the credit.

you and I are on the same page kane. I agree that it's not a rule and that it's always...usually... better when the potus participates in creating legislation.

That said, I see very little that obama or trump directly did that impacted or influenced the economy in any significant way other than signing the legislation that was put before them.

To be honest I have no idea just how much of a role in the bailout he played. I know the White House spearheaded a lot of the stimulus an auto bailout, but I don't know if Obama was behind that or if it was just his policy advisers running the show.

They just start useless threads like this because it makes them feel bigly because they can use libtards in the title

So... Democrats created the bill, Democrats got the bill passed, and a democratic President signed it into law.

It still doesn't change the truth that Obama's numbers are better than Trumps.

He also signed lots of executive orders. But seriously, the economy was in shambles when he took over. Trump has the other problem. The economy is amazing and just needs to stay the course.

Obama cut taxes, raised tariffs on imports to encourage businesses to buy American-made goods, and ended a lot of stifling regulations that hurt growth. Trump just tried to take credit for all that, being the sneak that he is.

My understanding of dodd-frank is that it helped to stabilise the banks and give protection to consumers - in turn this helped to restore investor confidence in the system.

As others have pointed out the economic upturn under Obama was in some part cyclical and to be expected with the opportunities offered by very low interests rates and low asset vales. Obama managed the situation extremely well.

However the QE instigated throughout the western economies was absolutely needed to stop the financial rot. It was probably the only throw of the dice left.

So 8 years of Obama, and before Trump has got his feet under the table he starts claiming the credit.

The only mistake Obama made was one of perception. He should have spent every waking moment telling y'all how fabulous the economy is, and that no president in history had done a better job.

Can you imagine how stoopid and narcissistic he would have sounded ?

In addition to all the many economy and industry crushing regulations he enacted by executive order... he raised taxes many times.

As we all know, nothing grows an economy faster than putting money in government coffers by creating new taxes.

Theres these economy stimulating taxes he enacted... during the slowest and worst economic recovery in the history of the nation...


And lets not forget the "stimulus package" wasn't read by anyone (1100 pages) and was passed the next morning after being drafted,... to bail out banks and get them lending again was given to banks with ZERO conditions or requirements, so they all just sat on it and weathered the storm and did nothing to help with all the bad loans.

OBAMA said manufacturing jobs weren't coming back and they are now that he's gone.
OBAMA said the economy will never see 3% GDP growth again and it is now that he's gone.
OBAMA said in response to Trumps promise of more than 3% growth "what does he have?? A magic wand?"

So lets stop pretending the community organizer, activist and 2 year absentee Senator from the murder capital of the nation is some sort of business person or banking wizard that actually understands economics.

But you know... pesky facts and all.


1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year.

2. Obamacare Individual Mandate Excise Tax (takes effect in Jan 2014): Starting in 2014, anyone not buying “qualifying” health insurance – as defined by Obama-appointed HHS bureaucrats -- must pay an income surtax according to the higher of the following:


1 Adult

2 Adults

3+ Adults

2014

1% AGI/$95

1% AGI/$190

1% AGI/$285

2015

2% AGI/$325

2% AGI/$650

2% AGI/$975

2016 +

2.5% AGI/$695

2.5% AGI/$1390

2.5% AGI/$2085


The Congressional Budget Office recently estimated that six million American families will be liable for the tax, and as Americans for Tax Reform has pointed out, 100 percent of Americans filing a tax return (140 million filers) will be forced to submit paperwork to the IRS showing they had “qualifying” health insurance for every month of the tax year. Bill: PPACA; Page: 317-337)

3. Obamacare Employer Mandate Tax (takes effect Jan. 2014): If an employer does not offer health coverage, and at least one employee qualifies for a health tax credit, the employer must pay an additional non-deductible tax of $2000 for all full-time employees. Applies to all employers with 50 or more employees. If any employee actually receives coverage through the exchange, the penalty on the employer for that employee rises to $3000. If the employer requires a waiting period to enroll in coverage of 30-60 days, there is a $400 tax per employee ($600 if the period is 60 days or longer). Bill: PPACA; Page: 345-346

Combined score of individual and employer mandate tax penalty: $65 billion/10 years

The 3.8% surtax does not apply to non-resident aliens.

12. Obamacare Tax on Indoor Tanning Services (Tax hike of $2.7 billion/took effect July 2010): New 10 percent excise tax on Americans using indoor tanning salons. Making matters worse: According to a Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration report, the Obama IRS didn’t bother to issue compliance guidelines until three quarterly filing deadlines had passed: “By the time [IRS] notices were issued, tanning excise tax returns had been due for three quarters." Bill: PPACA; Page: 2,397-2,399

19. Obamacare Employer Reporting of Insurance on W-2 ($min/takes effect Jan. 2012): Preamble to taxing health benefits on individual tax returns. Bill: PPACA; Page: 1,957

20. Obamacare “Black liquor” tax hike (Tax hike of $23.6 billion/took effect immediately). This is a tax increase on a type of bio-fuel. Bill: Reconciliation Act; Page: 105

Obama's Legacy: 2016 Ends With A Record-Shattering Regulatory Rulebook

Of course hobbling business in every way imaginable is a great way to stimulate the economy during the worst recovery ever in the history of the US.

Just a crazy coincidence that Trump walked in and tore up all of his regulations and the economy takes off, i'm sure.

So... no one is ready to argue that increasing taxes and regulations and giving banks money to sit on and do nothing with... and touting "shovel ready jobs" to ram a "stimulus package through" where no money went to "shovel ready jobs" and creating more business / economy stifling regulations than almost any other President while cutting drilling back, shutting down coal and presiding over the highest gas prices we've ever seen, are all what is causing the economy to boom today?... and causing large companies to repatriate factories and 100s of BILLIONS of dollars... that makes great sense. Wonderful economic logic.

Not Trumps tax cuts. Not investor confidence. Not him shredding all the regulations Obama created by executive order?

So... it was the "stimulus package"?? Thats all you got? No one agreed at the time that it had any positive effect on the economy but THAT is what is causing the economy to boom 8-9 years later? Really? Thats your argument against Trumps economy?

You guys will have to come up with a more sensible argument and start living in reality if you think you're gonna have any chance of taking back the White House in 2020. I mean seriously, Trump is your fault. 100% your fault. Another Trump Presidency will again be 100% your fault. You guys need a new schtick besides "hate Trump"/"resist Trump" because Trump is doing everything that he said he would do and it's working well for him and the nation. Thats whats going to be driving his re-election... his record, the economy, jobs, immigration, tax cuts etc etc etc

It's looking more and more like you'll stand 0 chance in 2020 since you can't do anything by run around like hysterical little girls, making headline news out of things like how Trump drinks a bottle of water. You guys are 100% out of touch with voters.

As others have pointed out the economic upturn under Obama was in some part cyclical and to be expected with the opportunities offered by very low interests rates and low asset vales. Obama managed the situation extremely well.

However the QE instigated throughout the western economies was absolutely needed to stop the financial rot. It was probably the only throw of the dice left.

So 8 years of Obama, and before Trump has got his feet under the table he starts claiming the credit.

The only mistake Obama made was one of perception. He should have spent every waking moment telling y'all how fabulous the economy is, and that no president in history had done a better job.

Can you imagine how stoopid and narcissistic he would have sounded ?


My understanding is dodd-frank crippled small business and was a negative impact on the economy, although I do not disagree with it.

Crippled business ?

It was a product of its era. It would not have been necessary if the financial system had not disintegrated.

It's kind of like the people who admire Trump. They do it because they're pieces of shit too and couldn't recognize a person with integrity and class if he rented space up their ass. It's not their fault...it just makes perfect sense to like an asshole if you're also an asshole who agrees with their asshole views. (Bronco67. 8th Feb 2017)

I understand that it was nec. nevertheless, it's impact on the current economic boom is very debatable and at best, minimal.

You can spin it any way you want, but Obama did better all around.

Trump the other day was talking about how his administration has crated 3.4 million new jobs in the past eighteen months. And that sounds impressive. However, during the last eighteen months of Obama's administration they had created 3.7 million jobs. This is the Republican standard - claiming the economy was bad under Obama, but much better under Trump. That's not true. It's good under Trump, but just not as good as it was under Obama.

I'm going make sure this next statement stand out.

Trump walked into office with a perfect economy, increased our deficit by 32% in one year, and still can't match Obama's numbers.
She doesn't know these things because she gets her news from "ConservativeCuntRagoftheWeek.com".
