Fine

But what about him saying they need to be raised during Obama's presidency but now says that same policy is harmful


Because he wants to get the same treatment. Obama got dealt a winning hand, and looked good in the process. That same good fortune Obama got also has the potential to make him look bad, and he knows it. Everyone knows it. Giving Obama credit for the stock market is ridiculous. All he did was pump our money into it and be around while interest rates were historically low. He bailed out GM and didn't even insist they make the cars here. Think about that. Mexico didn't bail them out, American tax payers did.

Oh I know, but no one is giving them credit for saving the economy. That's all Obamas. And it's one of the bigger fish tales ever told.

Well the bailout continued into Obamas presidency. It wasn't a one shot deal. I'm mad they took the American tax payer for a ride and used the money to boost their manufacturing in china and Mexico. Aren't you? And Bush was worse than Obama if you think I'm letting that jackass off the hook.

I guess my point is it is Congress not the president

As far as the policy I honestly don't know the answer. I think the average person is probably better off with GM being around than not. At what cost was it worth saving I don't know

Of course it is. That doesn't let the whole cabal off the hook for making a shitty deal.

He sure did. Remember this one: Bin Laden is dead, and GM is alive. That's Obamas quote.

Edit. Biden said that, but Obama didn't stop him. That line was fed.

No no the correct talking point is

The fed kept interest rates low under Obama to prop him up and the rates should be raised. But if you raise them on me you are willing America

-small handed orange Hitler


They have raised the rates every single quarter since Trump won the election.

They raised the rates one time from the 2008 election to the 2016 election.

Spin that however you like.

Rates need to be raised.  If they don't, the next 'real' economic downturn will have no way of trying to minimize the damage.    Plus I want higher rates for my savings accounts.

I have no problem with them raising the rate incrementally every quarter. I also don't think market fluctuations have anything to do with it either, they are already priced in.

Any bitching from Trump about it now is just for the cameras since it is voting season.

Surely it has nothing to do with the gigantic piece of corporate welfare Trump gave out via tax cuts that artificially inflated corporate earnings, which they then threw back into their own stocks to further inflate the market. That would be too obvious. :dunno:
