In late 2008, our economy was going to hell in a handbasket, and so we turned our nation's economy over to a junior Senator with no leadership experience who abused Cocaine and slept in dumpsters (his own admission) and voted "present" on most legislation that was up for a vote in the Senate.
Obama then presided over the weakest, slowest, most sluggish, most anemic, most poverty inducing recovery from a major recession in US history. Obama is the only President to have below 3% annual growth for all 8 years of his presidency. Obama did everything in his power to choke the life out of the economy. He raised income taxes in the middle of a bad recession, and also burdened businesses with Obamacare, a huge new expense, which was ruled to be a new additional TAX by the SCOTUS. He imposed massive new regulations on businesses over and over, which Trump has thankfully repealed recently. And Obama prohibited drilling on Federal lands and in the Gulf, and refused to approve the KeystoneXL pipeline and the Dakota access oil pipeline, sending the price of gasoline and fuel into very high prices, which further choked the economy and hurt the working class. Thankfully, Trump has reversed most of these economically hurtful policies, and we are now seeing the wonderful results.
Today's booming economy is due to Obama? What took so long? After 8 long years, why wait until you are out of office to start improving the economy?
Obama's fuel and gasoline prices, which hurt the working class.
