The Republicans had control of the House of Representatives and the Senate from day one of lifts-wearing conman Trump occupying our White House (January 20, 2017) through to January 4th, 2019, and it is the old fart Republican Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), old Moscow Mitch obstructionist, who still presides over the Senate. So you tell us, Jim2 and readers---how is it that Democrats are "trying to crash" the still Obama's final FY economy?
Economic indicators and the constant instability or chaos emanating from this particular White House is wreaking havoc on the stock markets, which produces alarming volatility...but that's not the only problem with the U.S. .and the global economies, thanks to the inanity and insanity of Donald Trump. Some of the systemic problems are slow-moving, but will have very long-term negative effects in a few months, like pulling the U.S. out of OUR PROGRAM, the 179-nation PARIS ACCORD, that would have opened at least seven new carefully cultivated new Asian markets to U.S.-made renewable energy products as a counter to China's aggression on trade. Once brat-boy incompetent Trump abruptly pulled the world-leader-nation U.S. out of the PARIS ACCORD, China was only too happy to step in and take over the world leader nation status, grabbing up those seven new Asian markets! Those losses to our economic growth will take time to manifest, but the damages will be compounded by the insane trade wars 6X bankrupt Trump has initiated.
It is DEMOCRATS who, under the wise leadership of both Bill Clinton (1992-2001) and Barack Obama (2009-2017) who fixed the RECESSIONS of the Republican presidents as well as all the God-awful gigantic fiscal messes made by the GOP---to include Bill Clinton's BALANCED BUDGET with a revenues-producing 39% tax rate for billionaires and the richest corporations that also led up to a huge $362 BILLION SURPLUS by the time Bill Clinton left office...achieved without one single Congressional Republican "aye" vote for that 39% modest tax rate for the wealthy 1.2%.
