Things didn't get better for two years under a Democratic president and Congress you clueless twit?
When Obama took office the GDP was under water with a -8.9% growth rate and by the third quarter it was back in positive territory with a modest 1.4% ending the year with a 4% growth rate. If we had the kind of obstructionist House that we have now we would have sunk into an all out depression which is exactly what they wanted do.
The Republicans are the ones that are holding back the economic recovery in this country.
In 2011 the President put forth the American Jobs Act which was blocked by the GOP. This would have put people back to work and further stimulated the economy.
–Moody’s Analytics estimated the American Jobs Act would create 1.9 million jobs and add two percent to gross domestic product.
–The Economic Policy Institute estimated it would create 2.6 million jobs and protect an addition 1.6 million existing jobs.
–Macroeconomic Advisers predicted it would create 2.1 million jobs and boost GDP by 1.5 percent.
–Goldman Sachs estimated it would add 1.5 percent to GDP.
But the Republicans have no interest in either putting Americans to work or improving the economy; their goal is to blame Obama for their own obstructionist policies.
Obama's policies are only far left from the perspective of the far right idiots like you. A critical examination puts him at more of a centrist Republican.
The Democrats controlled Congress from January 2007 through January 2010.
The market finally collapsed under the weight of all those bad mortgage loans that Democrats couldn't seem to give out enough at the end of 2007.
Bush tried to warn Congress that F&F needed some regulating as far back as 2003.
The Democrats in the Congressional hearing to rein in F&F in 2004 called it a "public lynching".
Them's the facts.
