Who said the economy is booming? How could it boom? The entire Republican party has made it their mission to ensure it doesn't. And in addition to BLOCKING 2 jobs bills, an infrastructure bill, two bills to punish outsourcers, one to raise taxes on the obscenely rich, and several that would've raised minimum wage, they even said it publicly:<quoted text>
More people have low paying jobs, part time jobs or no job than ever before in this country. If the economy was booming we would not be handing out food stamps to 47 million people now would we
Question to the most powerful member of the republican party, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel:
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS THE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY NOW, GETTING THE ECONOMY BACK ON TRACK?
OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY IS TO MAKE SURE THIS PRESIDENT DOESN'T HAVE A SECOND TERM.
Nevermind the simple fact that the entire GOP has proposed exactly - let me count these tally marks - oh yeah, ZERO measures aimed at the economy. Which is the same number of health care proposals they've produced as an alternative to Obamacare. I swear, you dipshits are like babies throwing food in their highchair while crying about being hungry.
