It took politicians from both parties to bring down the economy. In 2008, both parties, and most of congress were campaigning for 2 years, and in that time the economy collapsed.
The economy didn't rate the critical issues in the presidential campaign. No one saw it coming, and no one knew how to handle it. The 1.5 trillion dollars didn't help the people that lost their jobs, their homes, and many of them lost their marriage.
The financial industry is still out of control, jobs are still going overseas, we are still in debt for trillions to China.
The real cause of the economic meltdown were the professional politicians who made the decision not to do anything about the real estate bubble that followed the dot com bubble. Every time a bubble bursts so does the economy. But to have two in a row without congress taking action is the problem.
The dem and repub can't work together to solve a common problem.
We have seen what the politicians have done to the economy, so Trump can't do any worse, and the politicians can't do any better. But, Trump is the only one that has a chance to make it good.
We keep hearing about Trump and his four bankruptcies, but the gov can't go bankrupt, they just print more money and loan more money. That keeps the economy going, but it is worse than bankruptcy.
Bankruptcy is a business tactic to give people and companies a chance to save the company or give it up.
The government couldn't survive in the private sector.
What Trump did is go from the top to the bottom and back again 4 times. How many people have done that?
The Clintons were bankrupt when they left the WH. How do you go bankrupt when all your bill are paid by the taxpayers.
Even bankrupt they bought a 10 million dollar property in NY. And what do either of the Clintons know about living in the private sector. That is where most of the people in the country live. Trump lives in the private sector.
Clinton lives in the trough of public service.
Who do you think is paying her healthcare?
For those of you that say Clinton is the choice to fix the economy.
What is her experience in doing that?
A life in public service is not helpful because the government didn't do anything for the economy. Not for the people, but if you are a fed employee the gov gives them the best and most expensive benefits, retirements, paid leave, vacations, job security. At the expense of the taxpayers.
We the private sector hurts, why shouldn't the government feel the Burn?
