    Oh no, the Dow is back below 25k, I guess Trump will have to reheat his stale tweet again tomorrow.

    Following more than a decade of subpar-to-stagnant growth in the U.S. economy, American workers are finally starting to see a pay raise.

    In the fourth-quarter (Q4) 2018, workers’ wages saw the largest gain since Q3 2008, and average hourly earnings have risen by 3% or greater for six consecutive months.

    The 3.1% increase reported in the Labor Department (DOL) Employment Cost Index last week marked the first time in more than a decade that wages and salaries broke 3%.

    “Average hourly earnings rose by 3.2%, marking the sixth straight month in which year over year hourly earnings have been growing at or above 3%,” Secretary Acosta added. “Average weekly earnings rose at an even more robust 3.5%, year over year.”

    Construction employment added 52,000 new jobs in January, and 338,000 jobs over the past 12 months. Mining added 7,000 jobs for the month and has added 64,000 jobs over the year, a complete reversal from a negative trend under the previous administration.

    While manufacturing added 13,000 new jobs, employment in the sector has expanded by an astonishing 261,000 over the year. Strong job creation in these sectors has now applied sustained upward pressure on wages.

    You seriously think Trump has anything to do with ramming all those judges through the Senate? It's all Mitch. As for the soul part, well, for an example of that go see what he has to say about giving people the day off to vote.

    The constitution gives the responsibility of appointing Federal Judges to the President. Unless you have information to the contrary that McConnell did it, l have to go with the President. Getting the nominations through the Senate is, well, McConnell's job. As for ramming them through, if you have a majority you don't need to ram. Until recent years, unless there was an issue with an individual here or there, there wasn't a need for any ramming. It looks like everyone did their job for once.

    Voting shouldn't require a day off work. Voting can be done in advance - simply fill out the ballot and ID information, sign it and drop it at a drop off box - it can be done at home, even the old fashioned way it takes 30 minutes max. In those places where there are lines, there should be more voting places or people should use another method. I haven't gone to an old fashioned booth in probably 10 years. Worst case, time must be provided already in most states.

    Reading at a third-grade level (actually, third graders would probably be able to pronounce them correctly).

    President Donald Trump mispronounced Nepal and Bhutan as “Nipple” and “Button” in a White House meeting with intelligence officials — and noted incorrectly that they’re both part of India, Time magazine’s national security correspondent John Walcott told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin on Monday.

    Of course, that's not the question. The question is, what was the point of Trump's corporate tax cuts that have blown up the deficit?

    Which part of the tax cut blew out spending again. Please elucidate.

    Both can be blamed on the same people, but the reason for the inflated deficit is not the tax cut.

    Fiscal 2018 had a $779 billion deficit. Up 17% from 2017 and the highest since 2012. What changed in 2018?

    CBS NEWS POLL: 76% of viewers approved of what they heard in President Trump's #SOTU⁠ ⁠ speech; 72% said they approved of his ideas for immigration.

    So it is actually higher knowing cbs stacks their polls

    It's expected there will be a larger deficit immediately after a tax cut. Corporate profits have benefited against a competitive world economy of which other country corporate taxes were nearly all lower than the US.

    American businesses have responded by posting around 4.5 million new jobs over the last 2 years. Less people on unemployment, welfare and other government entitlement programs will decrease upward pressure on deficit. More people employed means more income tax revenue, more spending and a continued strong GDP. The markets were booming until the Fed increased interest rates to fast. They are supposed to use increased rates to quell inflationary pressures but there have been only minor signs. Wage inflation has been non existent so when the Fed raised rates into the tarrifs, slowing world growth and indicated more hikes were to come, the result was a sharp drop in the markets.
    The Fed did a sharp stop and tuned down rate rhetoric so markets have turned back up, Some sort of US Chinese tariff agreement seems ready to happen. Unemployment rates are near record lows, women, African American and Hispanic employment are all at record highs. The US economy will slow from what it has been doing but nothing indicates any sort of recession on the horizon. Unless oil shoots up in price, only slow inflation is anticipated.
    Seems a lot happened in 2018.

    Again, no, wrong. What you are saying is not based in fact.

    The CBO projects this years deficit will grow to over $900 billion and as the baby boomer generation ages deficits will continue to soar to over a trillion dollars by 2022 and over 1.3 trillion by 2029.

    See page 7 for deficit projections. Also see figure 4.3 on page two on why the middle class tax cuts weren't permanent and why they are likely to go away. That's going be nice, won't it? Trump's huge permanent tax cut for the rich and corporations is likely to end up a tax increase on the middle class.

    In 2018 receipts were up 0.5% (not much I understand) but the deficit increased about 100 Billion. I ask again, how exactly did the tax cut cause this?

    I understand dems like to use phrases like "tax cuts cost the government xxx" dollars, but just so everyone know there is not an expenditure for this "cost".

    A 0.5% increase represents a roughly 16 Billion dollar increase, just for those keeping score. I understand that is a drop in the bucket of government spending, but it's not nothing.

    Nominally correct, but that doesn't take into account inflation or the annual increase in population causing a natural expansion in revenue. The actual amount of tax as a percentage of revenue as a share of the economy decreased by 9.1 percent from 2017 to 2018.
