Apparently Trump's Trillion Dollar Deficits Aren't Going Over Well With The American People

Mod: Those trillion dollar deficits we discussed a few days ago? According to the latest polling the American people aren't very excited about them. Here's the latest news from The Hill.

Poll: Majority disapproves of Trump, GOP's handling of deficit (The Hill link): A majority of Americans say they disapprove of how Republicans and the Trump administration have handled the budget deficit, according to a new American Barometer poll.

Fifty-six percent said they disproved of the handling of the budget deficit, which is set to top $1 trillion this year under the administration's own estimates. Just 44 percent said they approved.

The survey, a joint project of The Hill and the HarrisX polling company, found that just 21 percent of Republicans, however, disapprove of the GOP's handling of the deficit. Seventy-nine percent of Republicans polled said they approved of the work done by the administration and Republicans on the deficit.

Democrats and Independents see the rising red ink as a problem.

Only 19 percent of Democrats polled said they approved of how the administration and GOP has handled the budget, compared to 81 percent who disapproved.

Among Independents agreed, 65 percent said they disapproved of the budget deficit's handling, compared to 35 percent who approved.

The White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) estimated last month that federal deficits could surpass $1 trillion in 2019. That figure would make up 5.1 percent of the U.S.' gross domestic product (GDP).

  1. The fact that the GOP greenlighted billions in tax cuts even as the economy was near full employment just shows how artificial Trump's numbers are. Normally, during a strong economy, the budget deficit should narrow as it did under Bill Clinton and Obama.

  3. The oxymoron here is amazing. Not once do I ever remember the Mod or the mainstream media running an article on B.O.'s unprecedented spending that ultimately left $9+ trillion in additional national debt, superceding all previous Presidential spending COMBINED. I too, am disappointed with the lack of fiscal responsibility by ALL members of Congress as of late. It's as if they're down and out addicts addicted to spending. Even Trump said we're like Greece at $23 trillion, which we're not far off from hitting, but make no mistake about the previous administration's historically record breaking debt accumulation that the media conveniently failed to spotlight. At least with this administration we might get a tangible asset, the wall, out of it, rather than a massive expansion of welfare benefits.

    1. Incorrect use of the world "oxymoron."

      But let me ask you this. Why do you feel others must take the blame for Trump's failures? It is true that American presidents have run deficits in the past, though that trillion dollar figure is unique. But why is it you feel the discredited "whattaboutism" tactic is applicable here? Is it because you are psychologically ill-equipped to deal with your hero's failings?

    2. It was either the Great Recession or, as per economists, it could have become Great Depression Part 2. You need to spend as a government to get us from that precipice.

      The government needs to spend in times of hardship to get us going. This tax BS was the exact opposite of what we were supposed to do.

  4. Once a 'bankruptcy king' always a bankrupt fool, and the darn GOP and their stooges voted this dung-beetle into office. The republican party will forever be known as the 'bankrupt party' all assets should be seized and sold off to by down the national debt. Since any and all illegal gotten gains including property should also be sold and then they can be thrown into a debtors prison an allowed to work on a farm.

  6. Illinois celebrates first annual Barack Obama Day

    Illinoisans honored former President Obama on Saturday with the first annual “Barack Obama Day.” The Illinois legislature last year unanimously passed a measure establishing Aug. 4, the former president’s birthday, as a state holiday. Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) signed the bill into law on Aug. 6, 2017, making this year the first that the holiday is celebrated.

    "It's incredibly proud for Illinois that the president came from Illinois. I think it's awesome, and I think we should celebrate it," Rauner said last year. "I don't think it should be a formal holiday with paid, forced time off, but I think it should be a day of acknowledgment and celebration."

    A spokesperson for the former president told USA Today that Obama will have dinner with his family in Washington, D.C., to celebrate his 57th birthday.

  7. I use to believe that it was best to try to reason with the Trump zealots, but after tonight my mind has changed. Myself and my girl stopped at a local brewery tonight, a gent that frequents the establishment elected to pull up a bar stool next to us. Within 15 minutes he said to me, Trump had the greatest economic growth in history, I said both Obama and Clinton had better numbers, I even pulled up a comparison on my cell, which he said was fake news. He then proceeded to rant that Mueller needs to wrap up his with hunt, as it has went on longer than any inquiry in years, and they have found nothing. I once again went to my phone, showed him Wikipedia data that showed that both Kenneth Starr and the Bengahzi investigation lasted nearly three years,. I said this witchhunt has numerous guilty pleas and indictments,hesaid thats not true, everyone know Wikipedia is a Liberal site. At this point, I got the youre not being patriotic if you dont support Trump, as I replied John, it was only a couple of years ago that you were calling Obama a monkey that was not an American, so where was your support? At this point he began to raise his voice and screaming that I was a terrorist supporter, which drew attention from the patrons. I said in front of the crowd that gathered, you may raise voice at me and cast lies, but if you think Im afraid of you for raising ur voice then your surely in error, and I have no fear of you or the other Trump nuts. The crowd began to taunt him, calling him a Facist, as well as other choice names. My whole point is we have tried the reasoning, it wont work now or ever, its time to not back down. If they go low, you go lower, these wackos are like Trump, deep down they are cowards when confronted. As Michael Avenetti says, no more reasoning, time to put on the gloves and fight. Going forward, no more trying to reason with these people, it wont work period!
