    That sounds awfully familiar...where have I heard it before? Oh, yeah, by Reagan before the 1982 recession, and by Bush 43 when instead of using the budget surplus he inherited from Clinton to pay down the debt, he mailed out checks to the American people (I got one).

    Bush 41 called this "voodoo economics", because he knew that trickle-down economics doesn't work - there's NO hard evidence showing that it ever has. But anymore, y'all seem to think that Bush 41 is some kind of left-wing socialist - and besides, Trump already showed what contempt he has for those who were shot down in combat and taken prisoner by the enemy....

    Oh my goodness. During the Bush tax cuts businesses where firing large sections of their work force. Please if companies can off shore their work force and the consequences for doing so is a huge tax break, what's the incentive to hire? These are the people who cause the crash of the Bush administration. They are the one's this president is rewarding. And he tells us that Americans are getting their Christmas present. Ya and he can shoot someone on fifth avenue and his base would still vote for him. This president really doesn't think too highly of his bases intellect. That's plain to see.

    The Tea Party went back to calling themselves white nationalists again.

    Quite honestly I haven't heard much from the Tea Party since way before the election.

    It was a sham movement built on lies and fueled by racial resentment and that is now more than obvious with their silence on the debt increase and most of the cuts going to the rich and corporations - not the little guy who pretended to be speaking for all along.
    Ya ! and they don't even care if he shoots someone of fifth avenue , they will still vote for him. And now they just can't wait for him to give them their Christmas present right up the Bleep.

    This president doesn't think too highly of his bases intellect as evidenced by his fifth avenue statement. And now he will give you your Christmas present. Only thing is the label on the present says (THE Koch Brothers).

    And as we all know, an increase in deficit is a okay by the Republican party when it comes to kickstarting an economy.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    Well they didn't evaporate! Seems likely they are now calling themselves something else, like (White Nationalist)
