So the reduction in the unemployment rate that occurred under Bill Clinton was actually attributable to Ronald Reagan?

Thank you President Trump

Thank you for helping to lift up our citizens, and provide much needed relief to the American worker. Glad to see POC doing well under Trump, and expect to see that trend continue

There was a president called Bush Sr. between Clinton and Reagan. Administrations DO overlap one another when it comes to policy you know, it's not like there's a total reset every time a new president takes office.

Also, under Reagan the unemployment rate for blacks was the highest it has ever been so by your logic Reagan was the reason behind that fact.

That depends. What was the trend under Reagan and what was the trend under Clinton? I haven't looked at the accrual numbers but I do know the poverty rate increased under Reagan while Clinton didn't really see great numbers until '95. That would indicate that the Reagan economy had no real effect on the Clinton economy.

That said, the upturn in '95 is probably more attributable to the Dot Com Boom than anything else.

When people get so discouraged that they stop looking for a job, and fall out of the workforce, the unemployment rate magically drops to new lows too.

That's a reasonable assumption. African American's didn't directly benefit in that boom, however.

Do they then go on welfare, or turn to crime, for income?

Indeed, it's small details like this that people are easily bamboozled . People assume numbers dropping off unemployment means they found a job.

Good point. I wonder how many people on these graphs actually found jobs. Judging by the murder rate in Chicago, I'm wondering if the unemployment rate has got steadily lower because they're just killing each other.

Cities are hell holes. In this day and age of deception where the dead can vote, it's possible they can also find employment. Or as amptah mentions they may have just stopped looking...

I love it. When things are going good when a democrat is in office, it's always because of the previous president but when it's republican it's automatically because of them. LOL!

Then what can we do to fix this? I don't want to see anyone in this country unemployed, without a chance to take care of themselves and their families.

I really like the President's infrastructure plan, which essentially echoes the message of the Democratic party for the last century. This will create a lot of TVA-esque jobs, and would really boost our people up while providing extremely urgent infrastructure rebuilding.

Additionally, I'd like to see tech education programs available for free or highly discounted rates. Clearly automation is going to continue to play an increasingly important role in our employment rates. As machines supplant humans in certain professions, more people will need to be trained on the tech

We should also focus on removing lawmakers that continue to push for draconian laws that sentence our citizens to prison for non-violent and victimless crimes. These are laws that disproportionately affect AA males, and has caused an entire generation of children to grow up without a father in the home. The detrimental affect of this is clear, and these laws tendency to impact AA men is equally clear. There is no reason one can think up to justify incarcerating someone when there is no victim, and I don't buy this "society/government is the victim" BS. The government is *never* the victim. Society is only a victim when there is a true measurable affect on an actual individual, not some theoretical argument of society-as-a-whole victimhood. The true victims are the innocent citizens who are terrorized by the criminal cartels and gangs that are created as a result of their various types of prohibitions (CS, firearms, etc).

Would you rather see more jobs or more state welfare?

I couldn't stomach being under the government's thumb like that, personally. Knowing they could strangle me out of existence on a whim is all I'd need to avoid ever asking the Fed for help.

Why does a certain percentage of Dems appear so dead set against empowering citizens to blaze their own path through life, and to stop relying on a bloated and corrupt government to keep them afloat? I'm not attacking you, this is a legitimate question/curiosity of mine.

Because it appears that some on the left want nothing more than to see a huge chunk of our population remain dependent on the government. It also appears they are dead set against our efforts to reduce the impact/invasiveness of government, and empower ourselves to take back our rights and live truly free lives.

Why? Please tell me I am mistaken on this. Because otherwise it is one of the most insidious and damaging beliefs I've ever encountered. I sincerely hope keeping so many people in poverty isn't a ploy to attract voters or otherwise falsely justify any specific political positions.

I'd rather see more money to science and education and less to the military. Our country's budget is definitely bloated and it starts there. Nasa and schools only get a tiny fraction of money compared to the military. It's a complete joke. The military uses far more money than welfare or government assistance. The key is balance. My point was that it's too early to judge Trump. He's only been in office a year. Usually changes take quite a while to come to fruition, so it's a bit shortsighted to instantly credit Trump over it. If the trend continues over the next 3 years, then I'll get on the bandwagon. I just remember when Clinton was in office, republicans kept saying that balancing the budget and financial success was because of Bush.
