Ad nauseum, we've been over this, I can't help you at this point. We had 8 years of your experiment and it failed miserably.

The Dems have no leadership, plans, agenda, or direction. Just old rehashed ideas from failed socialists countries and our own Hippie communes.  

You see, I know you don't know anything when you think a neoliberal like Obama is a socialist.

All of the problems you'ved mentioned above is solved naturally by Capitalism. IN fact, the only reason they are even problems is because we're (government) manipulating the market.

Seriously, why do liberals swear by the pseudo-science of Climatology where NOTHING has been proven to be true, but can't be bothered to understand the simple math of basic Economics.

 

 

Not really. Take, for example, the failed private health insurance market.

Tax cuts were supposed to save the GOP from Trump. Oops.

 

Tax cuts were supposed to save the Republican Party from President Trump. 

Voters would ignore the president’s Twitter outbursts; his Cabinet’s private-jet and redecoration scandals; the Russia investigation; porn star and playmate payoffs; and many other miscellaneous embarrassments.

Voters were supposed to be so very grateful to have a little extra pocket money that they would be willing to overlook all that nonsense and eagerly cast their ballots for the GOP come November. 

Unfortunately for Republicans, this deus tax machina never arrived. 

Just 27 percent of Americans believe the GOP tax overhaul was a good idea, according to a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. Even among Republican voters, the tax cuts are not exactly thunderously popular: A little more than half (56 percent) say they were a good idea. 

Other polls this month found similar results. And tax cuts are already failing Republicans on the campaign trail, too.

Fox Business, especially that English guy, has been red baiting like there is no tomorrow because of the recent polls showing how unpopular the tax cuts are.

New liberal who wanted to fundamentally change America...now I know you don't know anything when you lack the knowledge of what that meant. Now tell me who Bernie is again.

No leadership, no plans, no agenda, and no money in your party. Tell me about the blue wave again, I like fairytales.. ;)

It would be a pretty bold move to change America from a neoliberal country to a neoliberal country.

Also, since I know you don't understand this stuff: Reagan was also a neoliberal.

Thinking Obama favored free market capitalism makes me skeptical of what you actually do understand.

What he tried and failed on, health, auto industry, he tried to bribe banks with TARP cash, he EO'd the food industry, student loans, he also talked about elections and oil fields.  

So no nothing really...:D

TARP and the auto bailouts happened under Bush.

If you think nationalizing industries includes keeping the private, for-profit model then ******* dude, no wonder you still beat off to Trump.

I didn't post the whole article, but the rest goes on to talk about how their midterm strategy is to run against HRC. :lol:

Probably switched after finding out their Pelosi attacks were becoming less effective. 

 

If it wasn't for gerrymandering, voter suppression, etc, Dems could probably win 50+ seats in 2018.

You should here that in my voice, if I say so myself...it would bring tears to your eyes laddie.

I knew that since you fail on the political front you must still have a hidden talent somewhere. I never thought it would be with your voice though. Maybe we all can catch you at amateur night at Kat's on Piedmont sometime?

What did I tell you yesterday? Trump tax cuts two months in, you cannot judge anything in two months, do the Falcons judge a draft pick in two months?

It took two years to realize the economic success of the Reagan tax cuts...  get that two month BS out of here.

You've failed since you didn't vote for the current successful POTUS.

I said he tried to bribe them with TARP cash...notice you didn't deny the rest of my comments...thanks for the confirmation. You cannot have an honest conversation with these guys, and when you do they resort to name-calling...so typical

Ronald Reagan used to say that it's not that Liberals don't know anything, it's just everything they know is wrong.  Glad I was aware and smart enough to figure this out and pull myself away from the Dems.

See most people would invest in a learn as you go program like I did. Those who do not will continue to show up at the polls like a Democratic zombie voter, promising you with old stale ideas that are proven not to work.

You can't even see the third person, just a leg with fishnet stockings.

I've seen it prior to you posting and heard their idiotic comments as well...
