    During the period when the Republicans owned both houses of congress and the presidency, Unemployment was at 5% usually.

    Re #12,2007 was the year the Democrats took control of both houses of congress, which they held for four years. they still control the Senate.

    Democrats have had the Presidency since 2009 and both houses for 2 of those years and retain the senate and the presidency. So 9, 10, 13, 14 & 15 don't apply to Republican control.

    You keep pulling this dishonest garbage and you wonder why folks get so mad at you

    The policies of meddling central planners are responsible for all of this...and both parties are chalk full of 'em. Will you continue to vote for the politicians that meddle and destroy wealth and prosperity or will you reject big government politicians from either party? Or maybe you're looking for even more government control...cuz that's worked out so well throughout history??? Whatever your intentions, if you think the answer is more Democrats and fewer Republicans, well, you're beyond hope.
