so you admit the economy was not killing it?
As the economy is set up, it was killing it. I don't know how you fix the existing trickle up economy without blowing up some serious monopolies.

fact is trump was worse for the middle and lower classes den obama even before covid. deal with it you stonk obsessed GOP apologist.


I'm far from an apologist.
I'm a realist.

If Trump was a stonk I'd sell it.
If Biden was a stonk I'd short it.

au contraire mon frere
Reagonomics:
  • Reduce Gov't spending
  • Reduce taxes
  • Lessen gov't regulation
  • Stop printing money
"Government isn't the solution to our problem. Government IS the problem."

Bidenomics:
  • Print money until you run out of ink
  • Propose a bill so expensive your own party won't pass it
  • Regulation on steroids
  • Forgive loans and tax unrealized gains
"We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created … by the - you know - the thing."

This post is confusing. Are you making the point that excessive government spending is bad for the poors, or are you making the point that trickle down bailouts are good for the poors?

Gavin Newsom just passed Joe Biden as the dumbest motherfucker in politics.

Truly baffling.

if they gave it to mega corps wouldn’t that help satisfy their margins and end inflations?!?!?
Gov't needs to do nothing other than raise interest rates to cool things off. They've done that.

Dumping an additional 17 billion into the economy is counter-productive to what the Fed is trying to do. They can't spend their way out of this mess - that's how we got here to begin with.

Oh I'm sure that will happen if we fall into a deep recession and industries start closing / laying people off.

If money is going to be dumped into the economy it needs to lead to a production of goods or it's completely counter-productive.

my bailouts will be purely for executive bonuses
