    Regulations/De-regulation

    A lot of talk in here lately by people about this but very little detail provided. Thought this site seemed like a good resource or starting point for discussion on this

    That was your first mistake. But you knew that while posting this.

    Didn’t think providing a source for information was a mistake. I guess it’s each persons choice if they want to try and find out what they are talking about or just throw out uninformed smart *** comments with an air of superiority.

    lol, what's this even mean?

    Using a deregulation tracking website is a bad place to start tracking his deregulations? Maybe the spongebob website would be better?

    That's probably where trump gets all his political info anyways, lol

    Cause it's ruins the story that Trump is peddling? I don't know, but it seems they are afraid of knowledge they can't use to prop up Trump's bedtime stories. Republicans more than Democrat love lock stepping to their leaderships' policies. They will never criticize their leadership as we do with Pelosi, Schummer, Clinton or Obama when facts demand it.

    Keep the story going and bedamn the facts or logic. Extreme tribalism at it's worse.

    I did not vote for Trump and had no intention on voting for him in 2020 until I saw how democrats and their voters acted after trump won in 2016. They have done nothing but attempt to find some “trumped up” charge to pin on him while screaming to the top of their lungs out in the open. Meanwhile, trump has governed decently. He deserves credit. Obama governed much better than I believed he would, except for ACA.

    Of course trump is peddling stories, all politicians do. But his metrics have been quite good and for that he deserves credit.

    Racking up that deficit and passing a tax cut geared inefficiently towards benefiting the rich in an economic boom is a good measurable?

    You are amazing. You honestly think the democrats should credit Trump for things they didn't want? That is like me praising someone on how well he has torn down my house with my kids in it. Do you think that Democrats are going to congratulate him for putting pro-lifers on the supreme court? Gut the clean air and water act that Obama enacted? Blacks are going to beholding to someone with not one but three white nationalists on his advisory group? He even imports one from Europe with the neo-nazi connection. Golly gee whiz, I can wait for him to make the KKK the official internal national police. That will bring the Blacks, Jews, and Muslims out in droves to show their appreciation for his "metrics" and vote for him.

    You totally overlook all his transgressions and expect the democrat to not say something as well? He is from the party that investigated Clinton all through his administration and nailed him for lying about getting a BJ in office. He has done far worse, and you expect us to overlook it and praises him for torpedoing everything we stand for?

    You are one cheeky SOB. I wish you will slap a thug and wait for him to praises your slapping abilities. He going to do to you what the democrats are going to do to Trump.

    Yes, all politicians peddle stories, their vision for America and its people. He is a con man, you are a fool to buy in on his story. The guy has cheaped people all through his career. Didn't pay contractors and workers for work done for casinos and homes. Selling lies at his Trump Unversity, in which the court made him paid millions to those he defrauded. Stole from his own charity to purchase a six-foot painting of himself. Stealing from a charity, dude, is low as one can get. SIx bankruptcies and only the corrupt Russian money men would co-sign his loan. He brags about grabbing women's genitals like a rock star. And I would want this in the oval office? I respect men of virtue, like Ike, JFK, and JC. And yes, I can respect, even though I detest their political agenda, republicans like the first Bush and McCain. But someone like Trump, hell no with a side of chips.

    Have I appreciated his metrics enough for you?

    You can ride that train down, but leave me the f out. I detest the self-serving son of a witch so much, that I have to stay away from him or get an arse whipping from the Secret Services. I have no respect for low lifes like him in low or high places. Once he is out of offices, I won't have to see him or hear his voice anymore. That will be a good day.

    He’s a closet Trumpsucker. Did you expect otherwise?

    Very interesting: admiration for both Trump and Obama. You know, I can’t say that I disagree with that assessment (even the ACA — though for different reasons than you, I suspect).

    I can’t stand either of them, of course, Trump or Obama, but that’s okay, we do disagree there.

    All tax cuts benefit the rich cause, the rich pay more taxes.

    His measurables are mostly based on the economy/unemployment. Those numbers did not just randomly occur. It’s because he his stifled Obamacare and helped businesses.

    lol you can tailor tax cuts however you please. The one they pushed through was tailored to benefit the rich and give just something to everyone else so that they can talk about how everyone getting money back (nevermind they are the ones that expire).

    The numbers in teh economy/unemployment had been trending that direction. There was always going to be a good recovery following the great recession.

    Obamacare didn't do enough, but it did help curtail premium growth vs the trends unless i'm mistaken.

    This is the typical Republican line "I didn't really support Trump but now I do". If he loses it will be "I never supported him". Backing the frontrunner is all this talk is.
