I like the line "Voting Third Party is the Electoral Equivalent of Sending Thoughts and Prayers"

Got jobs? Spotted an interesting post on FB from Hillary…

New report: The economy will create 10.4 million new jobs under Hillary’s proposal
https://www.hillaryclinton.com/feed/new-report-the-economy-will-create-10-4-million-new-jobs-under-hillarys-proposal-in-her-first-term-alone/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=fb&utm_campaign=20160802feed_jobs

I went and found the reports…

“…Employment also receives a lift under
the secretary’s plan. During her presidency,
the economy would create 10.4 million
jobs, 3.2 million more than under current
law….”
~snip~

Conclusions (HRC)
“…Evident from her proposals is the belief
that the country needs to invest more in
education, infrastructure and workers,
and that the well-to-do, and to a lesser
degree financial institutions and businesses,
should pay for it. While her budget
arithmetic does not completely add up, it
is pretty close, and the nation’s debt load
under her plan is no different than under
current law.
~snip~

Nonetheless, the upshot of our analysis
is that Secretary Clinton’s economic policies
when taken together will result in a stronger
U.S. economy under almost any scenario..”

——————————

Conclusions (TRUMP)
“…Having said this, what he is asking for is
fiscally unsound. His tax and spending proposals
will result in very large deficits and a
much higher debt load. A future Congress
may be able to rein in this profligacy, but it
will not be easy, as there is a gulf between
what he says he wants on taxes and spending
and what it will take to make the budget
arithmetic work.
~snip~

The upshot of Mr. Trump’s economic
policy positions under almost any scenario is
that the U.S. economy will be more isolated
and diminished.”
