You didn't invest in tracker funds, then, because they went up 285% over Obama's term, and just 25% in Trumps term so far, and a lot of that is due to spending tax breaks (aka tax deficits) on price fixing with share buy-backs, that were illegal until 1982.Unemployment was already heading down, the high of people on government assistance was at the height of the Bush recession, and Trump's administration is saying businesses can take into account how much money they stand to make when considering whether to protect endangered species.tradingeconomics.com/united-states/stock-market
@goaded - I could care less about "tracker" funds. The vast majority of people LOST money during Obama's administration without major restructuring of their investments. The amount I gained (during his last 6 years) was doubled in the last 2.5! About the ONLY business that thrived under Obama was gun sales. Obamacare actually killed jobs due to the 30hr full time work requirement coupled with mandatory healthcare payments from businesses.Unemployment for blacks and Latinos actually rose to record highs under Obama. He didn't do them any favors. The media accomplices always stated the unemployment increases as "unexpected". I thought Carter was bad for the US economy... untio. Obama came along. He made Carter look like a saint.
@goaded dude you’re not even an American.
Obamas dick fell off
Obama did nothing for this country. Trump is the reason the economy is doing great
@Rissyanne It’s amazing how in 2009, Trump managed to supercharge a disastrous economy remotely through mind control (as the Chosen One he has these powers). No wonder you worship him as your god. And that dastardly Obama got all the credit just because he was president!
You are insane. Obama didn’t do shit except to divide this country
@Rissyanne Where were you during those eight years? Obama cut the unemployment rate in half. Even Fox News was force to admit that. During that time Trump did little more than sit on his solid gold toilet. And scream that Obama was an illegitimate president because he was black. A belief that I bet you agreed with
To be honest none of them are responsible for a good economy. Recessions happenand we always recover, has nothing to do with what the president did. Wage level is still shit unemployment is not a big deal.
He came up with Obamacare which ruined healthcare. My deductible went up to $3000. And my premiums doubled. I couldn’t have test done that I needed. Sure people had insurance but the deductible was so high they never used it. And Obama isn’t black. He is biracial. It took a White woman to put a “black” president in the White House.
@BigSlice it’s true that presidents have much less power than we seem to believe. We’re screwed with a Congress that hasn’t passed a law except for a tax cut for corporations and the rich since 2010. Yet presidents do have more influence than any other single individual. And Obama accomplished a hell of a lot despite Republican opposition to every job bill he presented. Imagine how much he could have accomplished if Congress had sided with the American people instead.
Obama accomplished nothing.
Maybe his job bills were asking to spend too much money 💰
@BigSlice that was the argument at the time. So instead they gave corporations and the wealthy three times that amount of tax money because they needed it much more than the unemployed. So that argument holds no water. The real reason was that they didn’t want Obama to succeed in restoring the economy and using that to get re-elected. They were equally angry at both accomplishments

You’re not American so you wouldn’t know shit
@Rissyanne Why not ask an impartial 3rd party when Americans hold inherent bias on this question?
Because you aren’t impartial and you have no knowledge about living in the US.
@Rissyanne Would not knowing about living in the US make me partial though?
No because you’re a liberal. You regurgitate everything you watch on cnn
@Rissyanne Oh yes.. CNN which I do not even have access to much less want to watch. Seriously do young people still watch TV?
Everything that comes out of your mouth sounds like it comes from cnn.
