With One Tweet, Obama Takes Credit For The Economy Back From Trump
Former President Barack Obama reminded everyone who is really responsible for the current economy with a single tweet marking the anniversary of the Recovery Act.

Obama tweeted:

Barack Obama

@BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

Trumpís biggest contribution to economic policy was a massive tax cut for the wealthy and corporations that he promised would generate 6% growth, jobs, and pay for itself. None of these things have happened. Growth has slowed, the tax cut has blown a trillion-dollar hole in the deficit, and the wave of good-paying jobs never came. The Trump tax cut had no positive impact on jobs.

Trumpís first three years of job growth are worse than Obamaís, as the economy is slowing under the current president.

The credit for the growth that has been achieved belongs to Barack Obama. Trump hasnít created the greatest economy in history. He has ridden Obamaís coattails and sabotaged growth with a massive tax cut for the wealthy and corporations that are so toxic that even Republicans wonít campaign on it.

The economy was primed for takeoff when Obama left office, but under Trump, the middle class and poor are being left behind as prosperity is a gated community for the rich only.

1. This truth must be put forth constantly

It must be repeated and never allowed to be usurped by the current occupant of the White House.

2. I can't remember who, but I saw someone celebrating the new year as, 2020, highest numbered

year ever under Trump! Joking of course, but it wouldn't have surprised me to see a Trump worshipper crowing about it.

It was all gloom and doom under Obama despite things going along as they still are. I saw a bumper sticker maybe a few months after Obama took office that said, "Obama Lied and the Economy Died". I wondered just where the hell that came from? I'm pretty sure it was after the markets started ticking up too. They started in lying about Obama right away.

setting the record straight, demonstrating the competence deserving of the presidency, and sticking it to SS well as rattling the pretender who occupies the WH today at the very same time Mr. President!

33. Obama to trump: "Mine's BIGGER."

And he would be accurate and truthful. In many ways, I suspect.

Iím no Freud expert but I canít ignore suspicions that one of those two feels a rather desperate compulsion to overcompensate... (Hint: it ISNíT President Obama...)

17. He's 1000% correct, but there are WAY TOO MANY ignorant mofos in this

country that are willing to believe that the relatively positive state of today's economy is mostly or completely the result of Chump's actions.

That's not just my hypothesis - there is a poll indicating just that, and this was most depressing thing I've seen with regards to our chances this November.

21. Real weekly earnings: Obama's last 3y: +4.50%, trump's 3y: +3.18%, last 12 mo: +0.15%

These are inflation adjusted weekly earnings of production and nonsupervisory workers

In other words a wage slowdown.

Life expectancy under trump down 3 years in a row --- unprecedented

27. The Democratic Party needs to be relentless in getting this message out.

And start pointing out that because of Trump's unfunded tax cuts, Fat Nixon and the Republican Party are coming for SS and Medicare.

They started with Obama's Recovery Act speech. OMAN sure knows how to troll a fool.

It's fun to see King Con calling Obama's facts a con job - Don the Con should know
