    …it's becoming increasingly clear that the Democratic Party doesn't give a damn about you. You got Americans becoming increasingly concerned about education, their children, inflation, chaos at the border and gas prices. But what is happening in Washington? Democrats aren't even listening or even pretending to. It doesn't look like their agenda matches up to, I don't know, anybody's agenda except theirs. Massachusetts rep, for example, Ayanna Pressley’s office phone has been set to voicemail for the last 18 months. And one of the things she says is she listens to her constituents. Well, I hope her constituents haven't needed anything for the last 18 months. Like, I don't know answers on why the grocery so expensive gas is double and a whole lot more like the supply chain and Christmas.

    ...

    She doesn't care what the people who actually elected her have to say, or if they even have a road to drive to, right? Instead, she's just following the lead of AOC and the other squad members, progressives as they try to push through this massive spending bill that reads more like a progressive wish list – which they currently can't even approve because there's not enough of their wishes granted on that list – which is over 1600 pages. It seems like the government is doing everything possible to make you dependent on them…

    The commentary here is so right on. Democrats don’t give a hoot about the middle and working class in America. They please their bi coastal secular progressive elites on one issue after another. They side against flyover heartland Americans on issue after issue.

    It’s hard to convince people of that when republicans cause all the recessions and raise taxes in the middle class.

    Republicans don’t cause all recessions and they do not raise taxes on the middle class.

    Keep telling yourself that. History says different. The last tax cuts were permanent for the top 1% and sunset for everyone else. That means under their budget, middle class taxes will go up.

    11 of the last 12 recessions under gop budgets and presidencies.

    All income tax cuts are temporary and if not made permanent, a reversion to prior rates is not a tax increase. I’m sure Biden will make them permanent otherwise a new Trump administration will have to do it.

    That’s wrong. Maybe you don’t do your own tax returns. When your rate goes up, your taxes go up. We are still under the repo / Trump budget. You do get that fiscal year thing, right.

    Correction, it's the Democrat Party, not the democratic party. There's nothing democratic about the Democrat Party. It's time to undo decades of Goebbels level branding.

    The Trump budget is running up a trillion a year in debt. 700 billionaires pay little to no taxes. Trump raped the gov for four years. But his Humper’s luv it. He’s sticking to….them and they don’t even get it. The middle class has been carrying the water for the rich everytime a repo goes into office. They love recessions.

    Yeah, I happen to live in Taxachusetts and for decades this state (besides Kalifornicator) is by far the most liberal-socialist state in the union. We've had to deal with dems like the kennedys, kerry, dukakis, gov patrick, liz warren (pocohantas) and rino governors like weld and the current one baker. But that pos presssly is just another far left progressive nutcase that often sides with or joins the members of the anti Semite cult with the likes of omar and AOC etc. I can't think of one positive trait or one positive action for America or for Americans in general that comes from a democrat in a power position, not one! Everything they do is in an attempt to degrade and destroy our American institutions (including our Constitution), and to racially divide our people.

    Let us know when you pull the plug, so we can later evaluate your market timing folly. My guess: You have no clue when to pull the plug, so eventually you will do it on "feelings", ending up selling low and buying high.

    Also, decent of you to say that Trump's tax and regulations are still in effect. So I guess it must be his policies that are causing the current inflation?

    All the democrats want is your money to line their pockets, and to buy votes.

    The inflation is caused by Biden’s changes to Trump policies particularly in energy. There has not been a single Trump policy that Biden reversed that has benefited America or the American people. As to the market, I’m in my early 60’s so I have to reduce risk as I don’t have the time to recover from a 2008 type event. I’ll always be in the market, it’s simply a matter of balance between stocks, bonds, cash, large, medium, small caps, domestic and foreign, how much to put in precious metals, commodities, whether to get into crypto or not. I never in my life invested more in the stock market than i did in late 2008-through 2010.

    The Trump budget in FY 21 Oct 1, 2020 - Sept 30, 2021 brought in more cash to the federal government than was previously projected by CBO assuming no tax cuts. So the Trump tax cuts fully paid for themselves and will do so as long as they are in force. Oh and the part of the federal revenues that increased by far the most was from corporate income taxes, you know, where rates were cut from 35% to 21%.

    Yeah, nothing spells 'republicans care more about the public than attempting to repeal the ACA 60 times, giving rich people the biggest tax break of all time, vastly increasing the nation's deficits which are paid for via inflation which affects the poor and electing the most authoritarian and despicable corrupt human being for president in history'.

    Got it.

    10 of the last 11 recessions a republican was president.

    Repubs raised taxes on middle class in blue states. My girlfriend, who is middle class, showed me how her taxes were raised.

    President Trump took office in 2017. By the end of his term four years later, he was estimated to hold $6.6 trillion in deficits, a 33% increase. The CBO predicted that the COVID-19 pandemic would increase the FY 2020 deficit by $2.2 trillion and the FY 2021 deficit by $600 billion.

    In less than one term, the debt under Trump’s presidency increased more than $7.5 trillion. In comparison, only Barack Obama had increased national debt more, totaling $8.3 trillion throughout his 8 years as President.

    True, but there is little evidence that RP pols care about anything but themselves. Big Bad Government in America is a bipartisan monstrosity.

    “Getting Rich has become the great bipartisan ideal: “No Democrats and Republicans in Washington anymore, only millionaires”, goes the maxim. The ultimate Green party. You still hear the term “public service” thrown around, but often with irony and full knowledge that “self-service” is now the real insider play.”

    LOL! I guess Trump almost doubling the deficit even before covid must have not happened:

    2015 $438
    2016 $585
    2017 $665
    2018 $779
    2019 $984
    2020 $3,100
    2021 $3,000

    I wonder what happened in 2017? Can you enlighten me?
