OMG, (Mitch), 10 out of the last 11 recessions were under Republican presidents

My advice to the Administration: If you want to do an infrastructure bill, let's do an infrastructure bill.

Before the pandemic, we had the best economy in 50 years. We should not raise taxes under the guise of an infrastructure bill and send our economy in the wrong direction.

that the 'late mis-administration' tried to pull to make themselves look better.
It's like that woman who took the subway and claimed she had won the marathon!

9. Do reporters ever ask Mitch for his alternative plans??

Geez, this is not hard reporters. Ask Mitch and all ranking Republicans every single time you see them what their actual plans are. The media constantly holds the Dems to the fire about every detail of their plans.

But Repugs go year after year with zero plans, zero details, and never get called on it. Health care? Climate change? Infrastructure? Social Security? Anything of substance?

Every press conference, every time you see a Repug leader in the hall way..."Can you give us specifics on your alternate plan to what the Dems are proposing??".

21. Attacking Democrats in power

is some kind of bizarre journalistic blood sport. They overlook some of the most egregious behavior from republicans, as if it is just assumed they will be incompetent and corrupt - "Nothing to see here folks, just republicans being republicans." Then they go after Democrats, attacking the most minor, sometimes even nonexistent issues. I am grateful for a free press, but after awhile the constant nitpicking becomes annoying and exhausting.

10. "The Economic Cycle"...a term that republicans love to toss around to fool people

The REAL Economic Cycle:

1. Democrats in power: Economy goes up, becomes a healthy economy for all.
2. Republicans in power: They destroy the economy, pass tax cuts that only benefit the rich.
3. Democrats in power: Economy goes up, becomes a healthy economy for all.
4. Republicans in power: They destroy the economy, pass tax cuts that only benefit the rich.
and so on...

Of course that there is more republicans do to affect the economy negatively, much more, we all know that.

Why people have not figured that out, I don't understand.

republicans always use that term, "The Economic Cycle", when they are in power and everyone can see the economy tanking, then they say "Oh, its the natural economic cycle"...no, it is not, it is the bad decision making of republicans that cause economic chaos, nothing else.

11. Republicans LOVE recessions, they raise prices to maintain their profits

even though it sounds counterintuitive. Then when the economy turns up, higher volume brings in even more profits on the inventory you saved from being sold at low prices. If you can wait out that game, as Republicans can, you make more money! More yachts!! Yay!

It seems I recall the classic case study on this was GM, called "target return pricing".

13. Another way to look at it:

Republicans destroy economy
Democrats fix it
Republicans destroy economy
Democrats fix it
Repeat, repeat, repeat...

HR1 should stop the cycle
Repugs can still win IF they do what The People want.

18. Also, Dem administrations have fewer suicides and homicides.

"Want to Prevent Suicides and Homicides? Vote Democratic"

"Violent deaths were associated with an increase under Republican presidents and a decrease under Democratic presidents, were higher in states that vote for Republican than for Democratic presidential candidates, and increased alongside increasing unemployment and falling national [gross domestic product] GDP."

19. Didn't the McConnell/Ryan/GOP's tax cut for the rich cost more than Biden's infrastructure plan?

Tell the republicans to stick it when Mitch McConnell and others whine about the cost on Joe Bís infrastructure plan. It will pay for itself over time, provide much needed services, provide GOOD PAYING JOBS, and they are opposed to it not because it will not
work but because they know it will work and be very popular. Every winter I try to go to western MD to New Germany State Park and stay in cabins that were built during a CCC program under FDR. The money spent on that park and those cabins have paid the
local and national economy back many times over. Remember Joe B. has a big picture of FDR up in the Oval Office. Go big or go home.

not that it would be allowed.

The USA really needs a Fairness Doctrine.

Less brainwashing and chaos, more useful facts.
