If Republicans Would Just Get Out of the Way, Our Economy Would Be Much Better Off

There are a few indisputable facts about our economy since Obama became President of the United States. We’ve created nearly 7 million jobs, unemployment dropped from a high of 10.1% down to 7.4%, stocks continue to set records and corporate profits have also hit record highs. Oh, and despite popular right-wing rhetoric, we’ve seen the largest reduction in our yearly deficits since after WWII.

And we’ve done all of this with zero help from Republicans. None.

In fact, not only have they done absolutely nothing—they’ve done all they can to get in the way and obstruct any kind of progress in any way possible.
So the reality is, we’ve made this kind of economic progress despite Republican efforts to prevent it. Imagine what we might have been able to accomplish had they actually tried to help?

Well, we know that’s not going to happen. The GOP has given away to the “American Taliban” and has fully embraced political terrorism. They’re willing to put the lives of millions of Americans at risk to achieve a political agenda. Their efforts at blackmail, sabotage and extortion have failed so they’re now willingly embracing tactics which will purposely devastate the lives of millions of Americans and destroy our economy.
And make no mistake, their push to defund Obamacare is nothing more than a partisan political agenda. Republicans have done everything in their power to sabotage a law which requires cooperation for it to work properly.

But while our economy has shown many positive signs of improvement, it still has a long way to go; and the growth has been much slower than many had hoped for. A slower than expected recovery thanks in large part to blatant Republican obstruction.

Right wing radicals, left wing radicals, they're all the same. They all believe they are right.
And how could anyone possibly disagree with them, because they are so, right? It's totally obvious even to a blind man.
And anyone who does not accept their positions is a fool.

Welcome to congress, and by extension, humanity.
