2. This is irritating.

Everyone in the US (other than the 1%) did far better economically under Clinton (D) than previously. Wages went down and the economy plummeted under GW (R). Jobs came back under Obama (D), although not for as much pay as previously, and healthcare became a right. Now healthcare is being destroyed under Drumpf (R). How can anyone say the economy is the same regardless? Yes, I realize there are poor people, on Medicaid, and unable to work that probably feel little personal effect. But even for them, they have working relatives who have been impacted over the years. It's impacted me in the area of raises. When Clinton was in office, the economy was humming and I got a decent raise every year. Then GW fucked us up and raises stopped coming for years as actual purchasing power shrank. Then Obama took over and things started getting better and the raises returned, although smaller than before.

Just don't get it. Did they only interview young people?
