You are reading page 6 of Winning...the economy under Trump. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Maybe you could clarify how "Hezbollah" ties in with the Opioid crisis?

Because Roger Ailes told itsy-bitsy to write the words.

What other explanation can there be? Her responses are nonsensical. So, yes, from beyond the grave.

I thought the thread started off nicely.

But it has devolved into off-topic comments and nonsense answers to real questions:

Hezbollah!!!

Huh?

You all have fun. I am done here.

Hezbollah!!!!

Interesting view point, but I would like to have read the original Wall Street Journal that this opinion piece is based on.

So yes, its all rainbows and unicorns for those people getting the thousand dollar bonuses, and stock holders, and businesses.

But what about the lay offs at AT&T, Sam's Club, and Carrier. Couldn't this wonderful economy have done something for these people? Say, restructuring work force through offers of early retirement, or instead of bonuses and layoffs, how about retraining. If you don't have a job, then you won't be getting much of a tax return.

If Trump is getting the credit for the bonuses and tax decreases, then he should get at least some of the blame for the layoffs.

Wow. A year ago Trump was getting blamed for the impending doom of the economy. Now, he is getting blamed for companies not offering early retirement or retraining.

At least those workers being laid off are losing their jobs during a time of a strong economy and low unemployment rate. They'll have an easier time getting another job.

The economic consequences of unchecked wealth and income inequality are not an unknown.

Personally, I've adjusted my savings in anticipation of the likely economic response. Isn't there an old saying about ignoring history?

I'm not sure how you figure it's going to be easier to find a job thanks to Trump when the rate of job creation under Trump has been less than that of the years prior to Trump.

I'll be particularly interested to see what happens to healthcare jobs as all the various changes to Medicaid and the ACA percolate through the economy.

Kentucky just got approval for a work requirement for Medicaid as part of their push to cut 300,000 people off the rolls. I also read an estimate that over a million people have already lost insurance coverage. Then there's the issue of free riders now that the individual mandate's been dropped. What do you suppose will happen to provider revenues as the neocons press on with their war on the poor? Switching to concierge services catering to the wealthy will take us only so far, I suspect.

Right now we are still seeing mainly the effects of policies of administrations past. It will take time for the effects of the current administration to fully take hold.

It's been trending down the past few years, but still it's growth. There are more jobs today then a year ago.

Hezbollah is the reason why Donnie Dotard appointed yet another unqualified person to a position within his administration, itsy-bitsy?

Hezbollah? You sure are funny, itsy-bitsy!!!! LOLOLOLOL

Why do you have such a hard time staying on topic? The topic of this thread is the economy.

If you want to discuss Trump in general, there is already a thread for that. Use it.

I am sure you can continue to channel Roger Ailes for comments made on the Donald Trump thread.

I don't know what person you are referring to. Alex Azar?

Drugs only were brought up because of you.

And don't forget BC that life expectancy in the US is dropping even lower given the rampant drug problem (especially among poor Whites).

Which I replied and received the response below.

There are numerous articles to be found about the impact of the opioid crisis on the American economy, and none of them are good, except for the millions that drug companies raked in as they were promoting their products as nonaddicting.

To which I also replied. If you are worried about staying on topic, at least add something to the conversation.
