I don't feel too bad for these workers because the majority are white males with no college education who are part of the "good ole boy" network who are stupid enough to buy in on the conservative republican lies, and who very likely voted for trump. You get what you deserve. Big dummy.

Is anybody really surprised Trump fucked up the country? He is treating it like one of companies he drove into bankruptcy. MAGA! We are winning so hard, so hard!

I feel sorry for whoever ends up in the WH next, with all this back patting over the state of unemployment, etc. the deficit has exploded and will have to be dealt with.

0900. Agree but just how do you deal with it?
We’ve had balance budget amendments voted down in Congress. We’ve had budget cuts voted down in Congress also. For thirty years some have tried to fix this but they keep getting out voted
Really if you want to fix this, the biggest thing you can do is stop “base line budgeting “
That’s truly when it all got out control

Yeah, need that COLLEGE EDUCATION. What kind of an elitist hates white males without degrees?

Get those gender studies and other useless parchments, then whine about student loan debt. I don't feel too bad for you.

What a pussy!

9:05 - stop lowering tax rates for those who earn the most money in our country. Roll back the tax cuts Trump put in place. See, here's what we get told every time an administration puts in tax cuts: "It will pay for itself with increases in spending". And guess what happens. It never does.

You know when it does pay for itself - when you give it to middle class folks who spend that extra money on day to day items. When you give it to ultra rich, it doesn't get spent. It gets hoarded.

Before you get all "well maybe we just need to cut poor people benefits and stop letting them sponge off of us", take a look at a federal budget. The vast majority of our money goes to military. So really, you have two options, cut military spending drastically or tax rich people and close loopholes. Rich people pay a much lower tax rate than the average American.

I'm sure people here will flip out about socialism, etc. But here's another newsflash, I highly doubt anyone who posts on TKC would be impacted by taxing the extremely wealthy and I highly doubt anyone who posts on TKC will ever be that wealthy and have to deal with the problem of high taxes. If so, good for you, must be a nice problem to have. I, too, have that fantasy of being a billionaire.

We agree more than you know
But deficits are caused by spending more than you have. Put a balanced budget amendment in the constitution and all that you mentioned will have to be done. But you can’t begin solving this problem by having a law that states congress MUST spend the same amount it did the year before

^^I'm aware of what causes deficits, on the flip side, deficits are caused by lowering your revenue too. All under the guise that it will pay for itself when it NEVER does. So, now we're in a situation where politicians say "well, we've got to make cuts". You know who those cuts impact. Let me give you a clue, it isn't the military.

And it isn't just poor people who rely on social assistance programs. It's elderly retired folks who were blue collar workers who rely on Medicare/Medicaid and Social Security. Programs they spent all their working lives contributing to. Those cuts, so some uber millionaire can save on his taxes.

The biggest portion of those jobs lost was based on the Harley Plant other plants going to more automation and lost contracts and so forth. Manufacturing has always been an up and down workforce but workers themselves are also leading companies to look at automation more and more everyday. Frivolous lawsuits, demands for overpay while work quality drops below unacceptable levels. Pepsi is still going strong but they as well cut their workforce. Unemployment on a whole is down so some plant workers lost their jobs many more in other sectors did as well. Blaming Trump for this is beyond showing ignorance. It's Congress as a whole and the house that are fucking things up. Come on Davids gets elected and that alone should be warning enough how the wrong people are getting elected to office. Cleaver keeps getting voted back into office again another warning sign. AOC is in office how in the hell will that ever be good for the country?

^^Davids got elected because her opponent thought he was anointed by God by skinny dipping in the Sea of Galilee rube. If you're fine with "those" kinds of people instead, you're dumber than I thought, and I had you pegged as a moron already.

Trump's wall should be made with his broken promises. Talk about piled high and thick.

I'd say Trump is going to lose in 2020 bigly, but at this rate, I don't think he even survives impeachment to run again.

The Trump Derangement libtards are highly triggered tonight. Guys, go back to smoking your significant others pole and let the big people have intelligent political discussion. Dream your Pete Buttguy presidential fantasies. No matter who is President will stop automation from disrupting manufacturing jobs.
