America has never seen a party less caring than 21st-century Republicans

Since Trump took office, Republicans have proposed legislation to destroy unions, the healthcare system, the education system and the Environmental Protection Agency; to defund the reproductive health charity Planned Parenthood and restrict abortion; to stifle public protest and decimate arts funding; to increase the risk of violence against trans people and roll back anti-discrimination laws; and to funnel more and more wealth from the poorest to the richest. Every executive order and piece of GOP legislation is destructive, aimed at dismantling something else, never creating anything new, never in the service of improving the care of the nation.

In fact, the ONLY thing I can think of they want to build is a wall.

But what did Obama do for the important people in the U.S.?

Did he give them a massive tax cut? No!
Did he deregulate Wall Street so the important people could screw small investors? NO!
Did he do anything to permanently increase CEO's quarterly bonuses? NO!

Go ahead, name one single item Obama did to help the important people of the U.S. You can't, because Obama only did things that hurt the poor, oppressed 0.1%.

We have a different idea of "important people".

Did he give them a massive tax cut? No! - Bush did that with the Bush Tax Cuts which Republicans blackmailed Obama into extending:
Unemployment benefits: not until Bush tax cuts pass, Senate GOP says

Did he deregulate Wall Street so the important people could screw small investors? NO! - Bush and the GOP did that. It's what led to Economic meltdown under Bush.

Did he do anything to permanently increase CEO's quarterly bonuses? NO! - Why bother after giving them enormous tax cuts?

To me, the rest of America is more important than a few thousand billionaires. It's sad you don't feel that way.

I know. The base thinks they are racist and their leadership fosters that so the base continues to vote GOP. But Dave got it right. Republicans are for the rich. Most Republicans aren't rich.

Republicans blackmailed Obama into extending the Bush Tax cuts.

They said they would cut unemployment benefits for millions of Americans who lost their jobs after the GOP ruined the economy. Not only did the GOP cost millions their jobs, but they threatened Obama with ruining those people's lives if Obama didn't extend the Bush Tax Cuts. Democrats want to help Americans. Notice you can't find Republican policies that help any more than billionaires and corporations. Look at the guy in post #6. He makes it quite clear who the "important" people are. Typical Republican.

And yet despite all of those wonderful things (eye roll)...the bottom line is that Obama oversaw the worst recovery from a recession since the Great Depression...increased the National Debt more than any other President in history...and screwed up the Middle East so bad that a rag tag terror group took over a huge swath of territory and caused a massive refugee crisis as millions were forced to flee for their lives!

In comparison...Trump is overseeing an economy that has been growing so strongly that the Fed has had to raise interest rates four times since he was elected!

To me, the real question is "Of all the Republican policies, which one is the worst?"

I wouldn't even know where to start.

Ending healthcare for millions.

Ripping children from their mother's arms at the border.

Cutting school lunches for poor children.

Cutting education.

The list goes on and on. It's like everything they do is to hurt millions.

But Ripping babies from their mother's arms? Oh that's mean. Republicans are creating terrorists that could be worse than when they created Isis.

Look at the economy Bush and the GOP handed Obama.
Then look at the economy Obama handed Trump.
Barely into Obama's first term, the DOW was at 7,000 and unemployment was at 10%.
When Obama handed it to Trump, the DOW was at 20,000 and unemployment was a 4%.
And Obama did a terrible job?

We know you hate the black president, but how do you get around the facts?

Not true. I posted a link. Republicans said publicly, no Tax extension, no unemployment benefits.
