Trumps 2018 Message: Taking Credit For Obama Economy After Dumping On It For Years

“The Stock Market is setting record after record and unemployment is at a 17 year low. So many things accomplished by the Trump Administration, perhaps more than any other President in first year. Sadly, will never be reported correctly by the Fake News Media!,”

Trump tweeted two days before Christmas, citing a trend in employment gains that began in 2009 when joblessness peaked at 10 percent.

The trend has been remarkably consistent for the past eight years. And just one year ago, Trump called the jobless rate “totally fiction.” In February 2016 he suggested the real unemployment rate was as high as 42 percent.

You know the Republican President has at best a tenuous connection to reality and I know that.

You know that he has no connection to the truth and I know that.

His acolytes, however just swallow that shit up.
Thanks from imaginethat, Hollywood and Clara007

Obama averaged ~1.6% growth in his eight awful years.

Trump's positive views of America and the economy are in stark contrast to the quite negative talking down of America and the economy Obama was known for. It is only part of the reason we will see for the first time since 2004 three consecutive quarters of 3% or higher growth. It also has to do with massive regulatory relief, every regulation costs companies and the economy money. Businesses were regularly blindsided by Obama's record numbers of pages in the Federal Register, costing the economy real growth and real jobs.

Today, Friday the 30th, is the last federal workday of 2016.

And the printed version of the Federal Register, the daily depository of all things regulatory, has topped off at 97,110 pages, by far an all time record.

Skips and blanks will lower the official count a tad later when the National Archives issues final data, but not by much.

That dwarfs last year's count of 80,260 pages, and it shatters the 2010 all-time record of 81,405 by 15,705 pages.

Indeed, the 2010 level was passed November 17, making each day since a new record-breaker.

It's true that the Federal Register is not a great gauge, since it's full of notices and such. But the sheer magnitude of it signals a new era in the Administrative State as opposed to a representative one, and a challenge to new president Donald Trump to do something about a runaway federal government.

We noted here last week that until Obama, ninety-thousand pages was unheard of. Up until this year, the 80,000 page mark shocked, having been passed just three times (in 2010, 2011 and 2015, all by Obama). In fact of the 10 highest-ever counts, Obama holds seven.

...

But now, there’s even more to worry about than actual rules. Regulation is no longer fully represented by the rules we can readily count in the Federal Register and can present in surveys like this one. Agency guidance documents and memoranda, notices, bulletins, circulars, other decrees are surging.

There are several hundred guidance documents in effect that agencies acknowledge as “significant.” And the Federal Register this year contains 24,557 “notices.”

And to add to that outstanding insight...... Mega Corps want regulations.... Why??..regulations are easier to handle by large companies than they are by the Mom and Pop Corps... Thereby killing off competition, and the jobs these small companies create... And that's how the CEOs in the 1% end up getting richer....Bernie!!

Really? You think that the exact same regulations that impact Monsanto Corp. are also required of Grandma Mary's Quilt Shop?

You say some thing like you just did and in your next breath, or the breath of some other RW conservative pretty much cut from the same cloth, will be claiming that any surges in the economy, the DJIA, Etc. are due to "increased confidence in the business world" due to Trumps promises to end "onerous regulations. And we both know that corporations pretty much consider ANY fucking regulation that cuts into their profits is "onerous" or 'business strangling."
You people are not even bright enough to get specific about "regulations." As if the same regulations concerning food production that apply to Purdue Chicken apply to Grandma Mary's Quilt Shop. You know why you don't, and so does most other people.
It's core to the simplistic black/white, good/bad absolutist thinking of the RW conservative. You won't be caught saying "well, these regulations are good and needed and these need to be reviewed more frequently and some of these are just duplication and just need to be consolidated, etc. etc.
Because that sort of thing might require fucking THINKING, honest discussion and research maybe even (God-Forbid!) compromise!!! RW conservatives are not good at that sort of thing. You gave to keep it simple for simple minded people, don't you? REGULATIONS BAD!!!!

It's either that on the GOP's tax cuts

You boys trip all over yourselves in your race to see how firmly you can press you lips to Trumps fat ass.

What a word salad of complete nitwittery!!....Yes regulations have different impacts based on the size of the Companies....Let's start with the basics, like payroll with-holding...the simple stuff for simple minds like yours...If you have 10 employees, it takes x amount of time to process those paychecks (a service you are providing the government without compensation)....now if you have 100 employees it does not take 10x amount of time, it might only be 5x, if you have 1000 employees that is not again 100x amount of time, it might be 3x.....So what happens is the amount of time per employee goes down the more employees you have...

Now before you change the subject to employee with holding or something like that...forget it....I am using that one thing as an example.....It applies to a lot of other regulations....The bigger you are the easier it is to manage those regulations.....
Thanks from Jimmyb, Sabcat and Kelvin

You amaze me....Are you really that dense in real life??....I am talking about Regu- fuckin- lations....It does not matter if they are EPA or Federal tax with-holding regs......

Only you would try to confuse a losing argument by trying to conflate the two, which I already warned you not to do at the beginning of the post.. Yes Dude that is the very definition of NITWITTERY
