Democrats are geniuses in a very evil sort of way, as evidenced by the policies they have put in place to destroy our economy again without making it look like they are responsible.
As the once-robust U.S. economy under Trump tanked during the COVID-19 shutdowns, the former president’s policies nonetheless laid the groundwork for a rousing comeback.
Lower corporate and income taxes, fewer regulations, and a pro-growth policy agenda guaranteed that America would emerge from the pandemic just as economically strong as before.
But something happened along the way: Donald Trump’s reelection was literally stolen from him, and in the process, the most weak-minded, frail, incapable man that has ever run for president, Joe Biden, was installed along with several Obama sycophants to run things behind the scenes.
Obama, you may recall, did not do much to revitalize the U.S. economy in the eight years he was in office.
Sure, the economy ‘grew’ from its 2008-09 ‘Great Recession’ depths, but it grew in spite of Obama, whose policies of higher regulation, litigation, and economic suffocation depressed the recovery.
Trump reversed all of that in near-record time, taking unemployment all the way down to 3.5 percent — essentially ‘full employment’ for the country — by February 2020.
Even with Biden installed in the Oval Office, the U.S. economy sprang back to life the first few months of this year as states continued to reopen.
Now, however, the economy is set up for a free fall again thanks to Democrats.
The latest ‘COVID relief bill’ continues to pay Americans to stay home rather than find new jobs, and that is creating an artificial labor shortage — and in vital industries, as Breitbart News reports:
The American Foundry Society (AFS) and the Foundry Association of Michigan (FAM) sent a letter to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) Thursday urging her to end extended unemployment benefits.
In a letter obtained by Breitbart News, the two groups said the 'number one issue' facing the metalcasting industry is 'the inability to find workers' and said it 'has reached a crisis level.'
According to the AFS and FAM, openings are 'near an all time high' and there is a shortage of workers across several positions, including production workers, maintenance, electricians, patternmakers, and engineers. The groups said metalcasters account for 490,000 jobs in America and pay more than $32.1 billion in wages and benefits.
As a solution, the groups urged Whitmer to incentivize work by ending coronavirus-related unemployment benefits…
Some red state governors are pushing back and are either ending benefits or requiring their residents to look for work or lose their gravy train.
Meantime, Democrats have set the country up for another major recession and market crash thanks to their purposeful adoption of a policy that created an artificial workforce shortage as businesses and industries scream for workers so they can produce again.
President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve!
He wants zero rates and QE4!
You must prepare for the financial reset
