The Big Difference
What is the big difference between the Obama Administration and the Trump Administration?
Obama is a progressive. He supports more immigration and Dream act, reducing the military, climate change and Paris Accord, fossil fuel energy reduction, more social programs and a reduced growth of GDP, more regulations on business, higher progressive taxes, investment in renewable energy, support of unions, and universal healthcare ACA.
These are all programs that are anti-business, anti-Capitalism and anti-American supremacy.
On the contrary, Trump has an America First agenda. He wants to deliver for the American workers, with more jobs, better jobs, more manufacturing, more agriculture exports, more energy production and energy independence. He wants to reduce taxes to make our businesses more competitive. He wants to give the power back to the people and reduce government over reach.
A Few Problem Areas...
Under the Obama administration, our debt increased from 10 trillion to 20 trillion. Trump has continued the deficits and added to our total National debt of over 1 trillion per year. This is unsustainable.
The interest rate under Obama was near zero per cent. This was under the control of the Federal Reserve. Towards the end of the Obama years, it started to rise slowly. It reached a high of 2% by the time Trump came to office. It needed to go up even higher to restore the Economic normal. However, Trump reversed his stance on the interest rate and asked the Feds to reduce it again. This was sold as a way to keep the recovery going and help the stock market. In reality, it was done to provide cheap money borrowing by the Federal government, and reduce the interest burden on the outstanding debt.
Failure to repeal and reform health care insurance. The ACA was to be repealed. However, the Congress under Paul Ryan and Senator Mitch McConnell and Senator John McCain defeated the repeal by one vote. This was after 8 years of promising the American voter that they would repeal it. When the chance came in 2018, they balked.
As a conservative, I am not really about winning political points. I am pragmatic and I look to results. If someone gets to a position of power, and institute policies that works and help the people, that is what I care about. It does not matter if that person is a Democrat or a Republican or a Socialist.
I am a student of history. I have seen enough and read enough in my 60 plus years to know what works and what doesn't.
