2020 Democrats Vow to ‘Fix’ Trump’s Booming Economy

Democrats pledge to 'fix' the economy during Dem Debate, despite it booming under Trump

During the first Democratic debate on Wednesday night, 2020 Democrats battled it out to see who could make the most far-left statements on TV.

Seemingly forgetting about moderate swing voters, the Dem hopefuls scrambled to appeal to primary voters by pushing progressive policies.

In between making arguments for gun control and giving transgenders abortion rights, each of the ten candidates discussed, in vague terms, why they believe the economy is "failing" Americans.

The population largely disagrees with the Dems' claims of this alleged failure, however.

88 percent of Americans think the economy is in a condition best described as “fair,” “good,” or “excellent,” according to a recent Gallup poll

Likewise, 72 percent of Americans believe that now is a good time to find a quality job, both numbers that are substantially higher than four years ago.

Each of the gaggle of Dems claimed that Trump's economy is 'failing' - It's booming.

According to The Federalist, Candidate Elizabeth Warren stated that the economy is only doing great for those with money, and Jay Inslee discussed a need to “put people to work.” 

They would be right; if falling unemployment and job creation were bad for the country.

During Trump’s administration, 5.1 million jobs were created.

Likewise, national unemployment is at 3.6 percent, the lowest it has been since 1969.

Tim Ryan argued that we need to raise wages, as tax cuts have led to executives pocketing increasing profits at the expense of their employees. 

Statements like these ignore that, in the aftermath of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, more than 4 million Americans took home bonuses, in conjunction with the aforementioned job growth and falling unemployment.

If you listened to the Democratic debate in a vacuum, you wouldn’t be remiss in assuming that the economy is in terrible condition and drastic action must be taken to save the little guy.

However, the Democratic Party’s lurch towards socialism would destroy this kind of growth that benefits everyone.

It’s a clear sign of the candidates’ desperation and the weakness of their proposals if lies and misrepresentations are required to sell an increasingly socialist agenda.

Maybe the real enemy isn’t the “corporations” Bill de Blasio brought up every chance he had but the false narrative created to fit democratic socialists’ view of the world.

Here’s hoping that the election is defined by policy proposals for the issues that actually require answers, rather than imaginary problems and their counter-productive solutions.
