A subpar economy looms

Obama’s higher taxes will continue so tax reform is needed now

Excerpt:

The Obama economy was stuck in the 2 percent growth range for most of his presidency, and many economists say it will likely remain in that range — even though Mr. Trump has promised that his policies will boost growth to 3 percent.

That’s not much to write home about. Shortly after the 1981-82 recession, the Reagan economy was soaring by 5.6 percent and 7.7 percent respectively in the third and fourth quarters of 1983, as a result of his across-the-board tax cuts.

By 1984, GDP was growing by 7.3 percent and Mr. Reagan won re-election in a landslide, carrying 49 states.

Throughout the 2016 presidential election, the Gallup Poll asked voters to name their biggest concerns about our country. The economy was consistently at the top of their list.
