    You do make a good point about low wages. But if you click on the link, you'll see that this info isn't only being reported by Drudge.

    Yawn - yes, out of hundreds of various economic indicators you can ALWAYS find something short term to cherry pick to credit to dear leader...unless of course you are in the middle of Great Recession and everything is down across the board.

    I defy you or anyone else here to show at any time have I ever and I mean ever addressed Trump as president? Sorry, this Bud is for you and yours alone....I will never acknowledge this racist divisive moron as my president, let alone as a president. He's a showman who puts on shows to entertain his 39 million out of 330 million idiot followers and thats it. Should he ever become a president or even act like one, maybe I'll think about it....but as of now, he's a fuckin white joke in the white house!!

    Good news. I see this and the reduction of illegals leaving voluntarily as two most positives from an otherwise disappointing administration thus far.

    If the"same thing" is that neither Trump nor Obama deserve any appreciable credit for the aggregate state of domestic manufacturing, then yes I'm saying the same thing.

    You don't think Obama's choice to refrain from the TP's call to reduce spending during the recession contributed to today's growth?

    OK, so here's the best question:

    If the economy is booming, as posters like the OP keep insisting, why do we need what will inevitably be a budget busting tax cuts,

    since one of the most used arguments for the budget busting tax cut is that the economy is anemic and tax cuts are absolutely necessary to get us out of that ditch?

    No I don't, the only growth that contributed to was the growth of the aggregate public debt and the money supply.

    Real economic growth comes as a result of capital investment not the gub'mint blowing ever larger amounts of other peoples money on expanding bureaucracies and crony capitalism "programs".
