Weekly Wrap-Up

Almost 97% of respondents in our most recent Weekly Poll said that the U.S. economy will continue to surge under President Trump, and new figures this week bear that out. 

We’re in the longest period of sustained job growth in history. Unemployment is below 4 percent – in fact, we’re at record levels of employment. Manufacturing jobs are increasing.

For our new Weekly Poll, I have a follow-up question of sorts: What do you think is the MOST IMPORTANT economic indicator for middle-class Americans? I look forward to seeing your answers – our Wrap-Up readers are a pretty smart group!

The 2017 Trump tax cuts have been one of the main catalysts for economic growth – but unfortunately much of this tax relief (especially reductions for middle-class families and small businesses) are only temporary.  

There are growing calls to make this tax relief permanent – what do you think is the BEST reason to do so? That’s the second question in our new Weekly Poll.

Democrats not only want to undo President Trump’s tax cuts, they want to ramp up spending to the tune of $32 trillion with their hairbrained “Medicare for All” socialized health care plan. 

Of course Kirsten Gillibrand is on board – she’s always eager to jump on any leftist bandwagon. If she and Bernie Sanders get their way, the government would actively ration health care, sabotage workers, and drive up taxes beyond anyone’s worst fears. 

What word do you think BEST describes the “Medicare for All” proposed by the left? That’s the third and final question in our new Weekly Poll.

Not a great week for Andrew Cuomo: His hypocrisy is showing in his rush to embrace Catholic teachings that are politically convenient. Cuomo’s corruption is clear in his use and abuse of our tax dollars for his reelection campaign, and his fiscal irresponsibility is sparking congressional action. And this week we saw more proof that his economic schemes are bad for everyone.

Let’s end on a happy note: Republicans “took a knee” at this week’s Trump rally in Florida – but for all the right reasons. 

Have a great weekend!
