Americans Have Been Shafted’: Robert Reich Fattens Trump Economy Brags While So Many People Can’t Afford Healthcare
REICH: "I think the economy is very good in many respects. 3.9% unemployment is extraordinarily good. But it’s not nearly as good as even the data shows. Let’s put aside the pt Barnum aspects of what Donald Trump has been saying. For the last 19 months of the Obama Administration, you have average job growth that’s higher per month than the trump Administration, even to a bigger point and I think Jason was trying to make this. I’m not sure it’s wise for Donald Trump to taught the economy when so many are concerned about health care and health insurance, about their pensions which are evaporating, about their wages, wages today, the average monthly wage is actually adjusted for inflation below what it was in 1973. Most Americans and most workers have been shafted they are still in very bad shape and for Donald Trump to tell them it’s wonderful you’ve never had it so good is not very convincing. I hope Democrats not on tell them the truth, but come up with the kinds of policies that are going to address these underlying problems."
