    Give me a fucking break! Are you completely ignorant of the fact that from the time that the ACA was passed Republicans did everything that they could to undermine it , which detracted from addiction services and much more?

    Do you have your head so far up your ass that you do not know that Obama strengthened regulations to protect air a water quality while Trump has bed rolling them back? You are either that stupid, or just lying. Which is it?

    Well, I didn't click the link, but Dr. Paul Krugman, a Nobel Prize winning economist, predicted that the market would crash if Trump were elected. No shit. Didn't equivocate: the market would crash.

    He could not have been more mistaken.

    There ya go.

    He may have been wrong about the market, but how does that refute my OP?

    Workers at the lower end of the pay scale finally are getting the most benefit from rising wages


    "The recent jump in paychecks has come with an unusual characteristic, as workers at the lower end of the pay scale are getting the greater benefit.

    Average hourly earnings rose 3.4 percent in February from the same period a year ago, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics report last week. That's the biggest gain since April 2009 and seventh month in a row that compensation has been 3 percent or better.

    What has set this rise apart is that it's the first time during an economic recovery that began in mid-2009 that the bottom half of earners are benefiting more than the top half — in fact, about twice as much, according to calculations by Goldman Sachs. The trend began in 2018 and has continued into this year, and could be signaling a stronger economy than many experts think."

    Obama?? Why are you bringing him up?

    Because some whiny twat seemed to be blaming air and water pollution, opioids and diabetes on Trump.

    Do you think those weren't issues before Trump?
