Economic growth plummeted over 40% in 2016 and consumer confidence peaked in Jan 2015 and was in decline.
The economy has accelerated from 30 to 60 this year.
Are these talking points that you're repeating or are you prepared to face numbers?

Growth:
United States GDP Growth Rate | 1947-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar
First quarter 2016 it was at 0.4%
Second quarter 2016 - 1.5%
Third quarter 2016 - 2.3%
Fourth quarter 2016 - 1.9%
So where do you get your "plummeted over 40% in 2016"?

Consumer confidence:

Look at the graph for a five year period and you can see it consistently trending upwards with fluctuations from 2008.
You're trying to fixate on the fluctations. I could just as accurately say that it hit a low in August 2015, and afterwards (during Obama's presidency) it improved.

Absolutely true, Obamacare mandated much higher levels of care for everyone in America which increased the cost of health care for everyone in America. There were hundreds of billions in new taxes levied on health care and health care providers to fund it which also increased costs. Even with lower than predicted participation and hundreds of billions in new taxes, Obamacare was still in the red by $160 billion last year and left 30 million without coverage.

When ObamaCare was passed there were 50 million uninsured in America.
The projection made by supporters of ObamaCare was that by 2018 it would reduce the number of uninsured to 29 million.
In 2018, the number of uninsured is 29 million.

Have a link to that 2010 prediction?
