Barry followed the FDR playbook, paid back some political debts, used MASSIVE amounts of Taxpayer dollars to do so and the results were very similar - "created jobs" for thousands of dollars more that the jobs were worth. At one point in the spendulous package the DOL was forced to admit that some of the $50K jobs "created or saved" actually cost Taxpayers $200K-$300K each.

How would you compare 1.8% job growth in Obama's last calendar year to 2.5% in Trump's 1st?
This is utter BS. Pure political slant. Obama actually picked up the ball that Bush was carrying. They both bailed out and it was the right thing to do. I notice no mention of Bush in your post.

The one place they both failed is the banks never learned a lesson and are already lobbying extremely hard to repeal much of what is in the Dodd-Frank Act which is scary.
