It’s clear now after five years of Obama that Democrats have no idea on how to run an economy:
So to listen to Democrats like Hillary brag about building the economy is a real laugh.
Today Hillary praised Bill Clinton and Barack Obama’s economic policies.
The last thing America needs is eight more years of Obamanomics.
CBS News reported:
Hillary Clinton touted the economic growth seen during the last two Democratic presidencies during a speech before the New America Foundation on Friday, and she warned that the U.S. risks falling behind global competitors if policymakers do not do more to revive the middle class by generating broad-based economic growth.
Clinton, a former secretary of state who’s eyeing a presidential bid in 2016, praised both President Obama and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, for their economic stewardship. And she contrasted their years in the White House with the tenure of former President George W. Bush, saying eight years of a Republican presidency “taught us different lessons.”
“The 1990s taught us that even in the face of difficult long term economic trends, it’s possible, through smart policies” to enjoy broad-based growth, she said, and “all with a balanced budget that resulted in surpluses as far as the eye could see.”
But when Bush took the reins in 2001, she said, he demonstrated “how, by policy choices, we can turn surpluses into debt.”
“That’s what happens when your only policy prescription is to cut taxes for the wealthy and then to deal with the aftermath of a terrible terrorist attack and two wars without paying for them,” she said.
What difference, at this point, does it make?
