The Financial services company Moody’s Analytics did an analysis of economic strength under both presidential candidates and found that Vice President Joe Biden is more likely to bring about a better economy than President Donald Trump if elected.

According to an analysis of the “wide range of proposals to change the tax code, government spending, and other economic policies,” Moodys found that Biden would generate 7.4 million more jobs than Trump and the GOP.

Center on Budget fellow Jared Bernstein cited the data showing, “the economic outlook is weakest under the scenario in which Trump and the Republicans sweep Congress and fully adopt their economic agenda.”

Bernstein explained it is because the GOP mostly cuts taxes and will never get to full employment. Moody’s estimates that Trump and the GOP would hit 5 percent unemployment in 2025 and stop there.

Moody’s looked at four scenarios, the top two being if Biden wins but the Senate remains GOP and the House is run by Democrats and if Trump wins with the Senate as GOP and House as Democrats. The worst economic outlook by far comes from if Trump wins and the GOP controls the House and the Senate.

"I believe, more than ever, in the president," Conway began his post. "I believe Sleepy Joe Biden and that 'monster' Kamala D. Harris would turn America into a 'socialist hellhole,' and we’d all have 'to speak Chinese.'"

Published

on

As COVID-19 spreads through rural America, new infection numbers are rising to peaks not seen during this pandemic and pushing hospitals to their limits. Many towns are experiencing their first major outbreaks, but that doesn’t mean rural communities had previously been spared the devastating impacts of the pandemic.

Infection rates in rural and frontier communities ebbed and flowed during the first seven months, often showing up in pockets linked to meat packing plants, nursing homes or prisons.

Michigan congresswoman has a ‘voter protection plan’ to keep Trump from stealing the election

Published

In Michigan's 8th Congressional District, Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin has not only been campaigning for reelection — the former CIA officer has also been sounding the alarm about the possibility voter intimidation and things that President Donald Trump might do to steal the election. And she discusses some of her concerns in an interview with Politico published this week.

Politico's Tim Alberta explains, "(Slotkin) worries that just winning is no longer enough. With the president regularly lobbing allegations of a rigged election — one that he cannot possibly lose fair and square — Slotkin, a former CIA officer, worries that America could be hurtling toward a civil and constitutional crisis. This is not what a vulnerable freshman campaigner is often preoccupied with down the home stretch of their maiden reelection campaign, but Slotkin can think of little else these days."
