Here we are about 9 months in and coming to the end of the year which will end with a fantastic tax package that will benefit EVERYONE. So, to celebrate lets look at 7 other things about the Trump Administration you would never hear Chuck, Nancy or Booker talk about and they should.




Latino Unemployment Hits Record Low What that means is that the unemployment rate for Latinos is the lowest … ever … in the 45-year history of government tracking. What that means is the Latino unemployment rate is a measly 4.7 percent.

Black Unemployment Rate Hits 17-Year Low At 7.3 percent, the black unemployment rate still needs to improve, but not since hitting 7 percent in 2000 have things looked this good, most especially after nearly two decades of double-digit unemployment.

Real Economic Growth After an unexpectedly high growth rate of 3.3 percent in the third quarter of 2017 (and that is with two devastating hurricanes), projections for the fourth quarter have edged into the magic number of 4 percent.

Soaring Economic Optimism Optimism in the American economy breeds investor confidence and consumer spending, which, in turn, drives all the creation and manufacturing and shipping of products needed to fill those needs, which, in turn, gives us Boom Times. For the first time in more than a decade, a majority of Americans see our economy as “good or excellent.” A near record of 41 percent believe 2018 will see an even better economy and their home values rise; 42 percent believe their wages will increase. Perception is reality.


Now, all I can think of is this speech.





Obama says success is not a result of someone working hard or being smart and that if you started your own business, you didn't build it yourself. (


The media at the time ate it up....

Amazing to see two very different versions of what success means to the media...or is it?


Minority job numbers are higher, consumer confidence is up and the GDP is on a roll. I would call that success after the last 20-30 of political rape.

The bill would initially provide tax cuts for Americans of all incomes. But if the cuts for individuals expire, most Americans — those making less than $75,000 — would see tax increases in 2027, according to congressional estimates.

If they worse thing they can find in this tax plan is that it has to be extended by 2027....it must be damn good for the American people.

It's called insurance education... the fact that it will be beneficial to taxpayers in 2026 to elect Republicans to DC to ensure they keep their tax cut will insure many voters will actually educate themselves before election day rather than simply clicking the names of whoever has a capital 'D' next to their names. Say hello to voter responsibility over Kept Voters, my friend.

If you don't have a job, then you are not and should not be either concerned with nor a focal point for discussion on tax payers and how much they're paying. That's called common sense.

What the hell are you talking about? You said you wanted paid, so I bought up working for a living. You do that and you'll get paid.

Not sure why you're so defensive? Maybe because the whole "we have to pass it to see what's in it"? If that's what upsets you, I can only assume you're a partisan hack.

Neither party should be allowed to get away with this "snip"...

So you are going to butch about "well its only TEN YEARS" of tax cuts? Really?

Would you rather pay more taxes those ten years. There will be ample time to extend or make permanent or even eliminate all of these cuts every election.

Some people wouldn't be happy with a Million dollars of pennies.

"Where to you expect me to put all of this"?


Sheesh.

Get a job, and keep trying till you do, or if you can...create a biz.

I've been working since I was 11 in some manner..if I lose my excellent job tomorrow I'll mow lawns or flip burgers for my family, and my own pride


Been in the workforce 39 years

The government handouts are from people like me, there's only 2 options...find a job or create a job

The tax increase is in 2027. You don't think we would have got an increase in taxes by then if a Democrat were in office?

The tax increase will be ten years from now, sounds pretty good to me.

I own a business and pay my employees well. Much more than I pay myself.

From what I've seen in this bill, we all benefit.

Employers are DYING for help!

Obama says success is not a result of someone working hard or being smart and that if you started your own business, you didn't build it yourself.


No he did not. And you know it. Everybody knows it by now. Why would you include that? It completely throws into question the rest of your post.

And if you really does not know what he said, my apologies, but really you should know by now: Obama was talking about the infrastructure of America, about the institutions set up that makes it possible for you to run a business in the first place - or more specifically about the "unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive".


With regards to the rest of your post, I guess that it is debatable who is responsible for the numbers in question, and that will be Trump haters argument; it is not his accomplishment - but have no doubt, if the situation had worsened, the would blame him even; it *would* be his fault.

The truth lies somewhere in between as most of the parameters points relies on both systems already in place and on confidence and expectations for the future.
