Well yeah Democrats tend to go on regulation binges and tax increases and anti-growth polices. Doing "more" is not in an of itself doing "better" it depends on what is that "more". The Democrats took a measly $161B deficit to a whopping $1,400B in just two years, Trump hasn't even come close. And all his attempts to foll back some of those huge spending increases have been met with resistance and as I recall you have not supported his proposed spending cuts. Congress controls the budget and spending. So again comparing the Democrat policies vis-a-vis the 2008 recession to the Republican policies vis-a-vis the 2001 recession who should we put in charge?
