    US economy grows 2.3 percent in 2019, slowest year of Trump presidency

    US economy grows 2.3 percent in 2019, slowest year of Trump presidency | TheHill

    The U.S. economy grew at a 2.3 percent pace in 2019, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), the lowest rate of growth in Donald Trump's presidency.

    The rate was a fall from 2.9 percent the previous year and below the 2.4 percent growth level in 2017.

    Critics of the 2017 GOP tax law have noted that it was supposed to push economic growth up by stimulating such investment.

    "Rather than causing a flood of business investment that would trickle down to workers, today’s report shows that, in the wake of his tax cuts, business investment has declined for three consecutive quarters
    So much winning.

    It's almost like everything Republicans and Trump told us would happen thanks to their economic policies was dead ****ing wrong. Worst yet, we're getting this pathetic growth while pushing the deficit through the roof for absolutely no reason.
    Obstruction of Justice also applies to overt coercion of court or government officials via the means of threats or actual physical harm and also applying to deliberate sedition against a court official to undermine the appearance of legitimate authority.

    Hope you're not expecting republicans to answer. They were totally busy bashing obama for these types of numbers after bush left the country in a mess. Now the numbers, who cares right?

    All republicans are interested in doing is attacking anyone who doesn't think like they do. Bring up something like these numbers and you hear crickets from the right.

    Pathetic growth?What did the Democrats and Obama say would happen? We were going into a recession and growth would never be above 2 percent in our lifetimes. I don't remember you or any Democrat complaining about Obama doubling the debt! Now, liberals are concerned with it? LOL!!!

    Life expectancy goes up first time since Obama and his horrible record on drugs and the insane Obamacare mandate were in place. U.S. life expectancy increases for first time in 4 years - POLITICO GO TRUMP!!!

    Obama said that we would never again be above 2 percent. WRONG! I'll take these numbers along with the job numbers any day over a Democrat President.
