Rising interest rates, rising gas and utility prices, regressive taxes via tariffs, a glut of jobs and flat wages.

We need a real leader, and quick.

Inflation and rising housing costs increases the number of full-time employed people living in poverty.

That is the kind of dynamic that started the Russian Revolution.

Of course not... not when America's far-right money lovers running all four branches of government (some people consider the SCOTUS the "fourth branch") are increasingly trying to roll America backwards towards slave labor. No surprise.

It’s not a cure for poverty, if they are not willing to work, and rise themselves up out of poverty.
That’s on them, the type of life they want for themselves and their families.

For those in poverty, unable to work, the increase in jobs does indeed help them significantly.
The tens of millions going back to work, will increase what the federal government and local governments collect in tax revenue, and have more ability to help the truly needy.

This is simple economics! The exact economics that socialists deny, because they want to control every American, and every tax paying business, even thou they are fully aware of the negative effects it has had historically.

This is exactly why I “USED TO BE A DEMOCRAT”! And can no longer can support the party of misery and hatred.

Following up no. 5 above, that's what they mean by "MAGA" but will never publicly admit it.

Any tycoon (i.e., Paul Allen) who rides around on a 400+ foot yacht has obviously had his foot on the neck of the American worker during most of his career. It goes hand-in-hand..01 percenters bribe congress (mostly GOP but occasionally dems) with bigger amounts of money to keep it that way, which deviates away from the so-called "free market" (instead, it's cheating).

Are you competing with T-Boss for the most communist BS in one post? Interest rates were unrealistically low for a long time, punishing savers. They are rising now but will remain low by historical standards.

George W. Bush supported fracking and senator Obama opposed it. Thanks to fracking and the Republicans we have a record production of oil and gas. Oil is a worldwide commodity subject to changes in worldwide situations. Now its price is up a bit but thanks to our increasing production and the pipeline from Canada which Obama blocked and Trump unblocked, it won't last long.

Trump's tax cuts made us more competitive and the results are spectacular, the best economy in decades and lowest unemployment ever. 600,000 manufacturing jobs created (yes, those Obama said would never come back).

After being stagnant for a long time, under Trump wages are finally rising. If you were not a stupid communist you would know that if you have more job openings than people to take them, rising wages are inevitable.

It is interesting that a communist opposes Trump's fight against unfair trade practices by foreign countries that have devastated entire industries in the USA. Trump has already been spectacularly successful with South Korea, Mexico and Canada and he won't give up until China makes concessions he demands. You probably don't know that a trade deficit means transfer of our wealth to countries that export more to the USA than USA exports to those countries. We have already transferred trillions of our wealth to China over the decades,$ 375 billion last year alone.

Read the above several times and you'll be less stupid.

Capitalism could be allowed to remain as long as it's fair and reasonable. Today's income inequality graph shows it's not, and needs immediate reform. Socialism alone wouldn't have collapsed Venezuela. It was a combination of several factors including mismanagement, disorganization and incompetence, and the U.S. GOP deliberately devaluing oil prices because of their hostility to socialism.

America's common workers trying to do their best to prevent the GOP and/or their employers from stealing their hard-earned wages is not "communism"... it's called preventing t-h-e-f-t THEFT!

Jobs is not Communism. The only jobs behind this fake victory dance are call center jobs.. They are disposable contractor jobs for people who are supposed to harass, con and otherwise commit crimes for sweatshop keepers.

Trump has done nothing and will continue to do nothing but deregulate business while freely allowing H-1b VISAs in the relentless effort to drive down wages. Every penny of profit is moved overseas to avoid taxes. Trump has done and will continue to do NOTHING to stop that.

That's who the Republicans are.

The Democrats? Well.... they hate, no, HAATTTTEEE White males....so basically they're the same as Republicans but they also want to take the cr@ap jobs away from men and give them to anyone who pays for protection by the Democratic party.

Mid-terms is not worth leaving the house for. Nope.

Democrats have become naysayers. We don't need any more naysayers stagnating Congress and impeding the appointment of Federal Judges. Democrats look the other way, as their leaders instigate mob mentalities and street thuggery. Voting for any Democrat is voting for a half empty platform based in anger and depression.
