Layoffs coming for steelworkers

apparently Steel companies in the US are not resurgent under Trump.

At least the ones that make steel for infrastructure, you would think that a trillion dollars in infrastructure would need some steel.
But apparently imaginary infrastructure with imaginary funding from an imaginary infrastructure bill, uses imaginary steel...

Sure I guess you want him to just wave a magic wand and the steel industry will recover after all it's been a whole 12 hours since he signed the so called Budget Cut legislation, did you graduate form H.S.?

Goober rides the short-bus.

The economy is running along quite nicely now, thanks to Trump policies, and it looks like we will have for the first time since 2004 three consecutive quarters of 3% or greater growth, Goober sad over that.

It was a campaign promise, a trillion in infrastructure, where's that bill now?

Well now, after the tax cut, we don't have the money.

How many of those steel workers voted for Trump?
Trusting in Trump is the first step in getting screwed by Trump.

What growth are you talking about, please give examples. Quoting statistics doesn’t cut it.

Bush had some nice growth before his policies crashed the economy.
Trump is running up the deficit, that makes growth, at first and then you pay.

The policy that crashed the market was the manditory lending of unsecured loans to high risk borrowers.that was actually a democrat policy and law. But it happened in Bush"s term so he owns it and Obama owns it from his first day in office till his last, too.

The first part is what the ignorant believers of tinkle-on economics (thx Clara) actually believe, the fools.

They can't see the second part, it's too complex for them to think past tomorrow.

LOL RNG prefers Obama deficits (added nearly $9 trillion to the debt) with less than an average of 2% growth over his 8 miserable years. Good golly, RNG and goober deserve each other.
