So gumbo, in other words president Trump has accomplished exactly what I posted.

And I forgot to mention another important Trump accomplishment.. undoing everything obama.

So you got nothing and the democrats are imploding...And prison cells are awaiting.

But just all you lib hypocrites, you can't dispute the facts, so you just showed up to show your ignorance.

Give up TNT, you're like PeeWee Herman arguing with Albert Einstein. Show us a 400 page spreadsheet and I'll show you a 250 page roll of Charmin.

Math? That's not math, that's superstition. If you really wanted to make a comparison about that time, you would have to know all about what the economy was at that time.

For instance how did the economy compare to this economy at this time under Trump.
Did the stock market break new records more than 65 time in less than a year, and still climbing as it is under President Trump?
And did said stock market add 5.3 TRILLION DOLLARS to the nations economy, as it already has done under President Trump.
Were there a million new jobs created, and many billions of dollars pledged by companies to expand, hire, and build, as there has been under President Trump.

That's a few things that should show you what 'doing the math' looks like.

And speaking of doing the math.. I heard one of Trump's friends who has known him for years say, "Donald Trump can read a 400 page spread sheet as easily as you read a Tom Clancy novel'.

You dunces keep underestimating the best pres. we've had in a long time.

Republicans currently have control of the oval office, the house and the senate. The last time that happened in this country was in 1928. The following year the Great Depression occurred. Do the math.

EaM, do you have a degree in economics or the related? You're pretty much the only poster I've seen make so much sense on the subject. I'm impressed.

Republicans like sending jobs out of the country so lower wages can be paid. Republicans fight tooth and nail over raising the minimum wage. Republicans favor lower taxes for the wealthy and higher taxes for the poor. Republicans hate unions who give voice and a modicum of power to the worker Instead of the overlord. Republicans think the long disproved "trickle down" theory Is an actual thing In reality. But Non-Republicans are the problem?

U6 includes anyone over 16 who has looked for a full time job (including part time workers) but haven't been able to get one, as well as people who stopped looking for a job. More or less its the total unemployment rate.

U6 dropped 0.2% as well last month. U6 counts everyone over the age of 16 who has looked for a job at any time in the last 12 months. Since 2009, U6 has dropped almost 6%.

Out of all the jobs we lost I can see this as a HUGE job growth but it's hardly a dent in what jobs that were lost, we still need millions more jobs and jobs that pay better than minimum wage.

How did you come up with the extra dime on the $10.10 figure? You have not been reading democrat propaganda have you?

>>>Following a typical recession, wage growth should reach 3 percent or higher. Weak pay hikes are keeping workers' real income only slightly ahead of inflation, damping their purchasing power. Consumer spending accounts for roughly two-thirds of economic activity in the U.S., so an uptick in wages is vital to broader growth.

You're absolutely right. But how can we make companies pay people more??? Raise the minimum wage you say? I'm all for it. Let's get Congress on it. Hasn't had an adjustment in years and hasn't kept up with inflation as needed. $10.10 an hour. Let's get them on it.

Courtesy of CBS news:
A missing piece of the puzzle in 2014, and in the recovery overall, was stronger earnings growth. Average hourly wages fell 0.2 percent in December, to $24.57, the Labor Department said Friday. For the year it rose a meager 1.7 percent -- that's less than the 1.9 percent hourly wage growth recorded in 2013.
