One of the shining qualities of Creepy Uncle Joe, the current Vice-President, is that he will occasionally let the truth slip from his mouth.
Yup, the past six years have been really, really hard for America. That is what you get for letting an admitted socialist run the federal executive branch.
Let’s review the numbers. The last recession ended on July 1, 2009. We have had at least one single quarter of negative GDP growth since then, but it takes two or more in a row to count as a recession. That puts America over five and half years into a very lackluster “recovery,” which has often be described as “jobless.”
Historically, recoveries from recessions have been been as strong as the preceding recession was deep. Except for this current recovery. Instead of an actual recovery, we have the worst economy in over a half century.
Clearly, the so-called “economic policy” of our Dear Leader and the Congressional democrats have hindered economic growth, which is not a surprise to anyone paying the slightest bit of attention. It’s a tribute to the robustness of the American economic engine that there has been any growth under the Obama regime’s anti-growth policies of massive tax hikes, “wealth distribution”, and record setting levels of crippling federal debt ($18.1 Trillion and climbing).
