The unemployment rate is currently 4.9%. I just saw trump in a speech say that the actual unemployment rate is between 35% and 42%.
I hope he gets the republican nomination.

need2KNOW....nothing is free. Sanders wants to replace Obamacare with single payer Medacare for all which will eliminate what Americans pay health insurance companies and be a savings for all Americans. trump wants to replace Obamacare with something terrific but doesn't say what it is or how he will pay for it.
Bernie Sanders tells how the programs he wants would be paid for on his web site, he spells it out for anyone that takes the time to look at it.
Does trump doesn't tell how he is going to round up eleven million people and serve due process in court and how it will be paid for? Does trump tell you how he is going to get Mexico to pay for a wall along our southern border?

It's the republicans that are always crying that they don't want to pay taxes, they're the ones that want everything for free. Democrats are willing to pay the taxes it takes to run the government for the people.
All you have to do is look at how much more the blue states send to Washington in federal taxes than they ever get back and look at the red states that get many times the dollars from Washington than they pay in federal taxes. If it weren't for the money from the blue states the red state hillbillies would be more backwards than they already are. No problem, somebody has to take care of them.

redeye....I'm proud of my daughter and those words would never come out of my mouth and those thoughts would never enter my head. I have countless friends with daughters and have never heard any of them say anything like that and if they did they wouldn't be my friend any longer.

From donald trump's own mouth.

You get the government you deserve. The main reason we have the government we have is because young people don't vote and Democrats don't vote in non presidential elections. Our congress is republican because that's who votes.

"Wages grew because regulatory reforms lower prices for major consumer goods such as housing...." Are you kidding me, house prices where I live are going up $10,000 a month, the average one bedroom apartment in San Francisco is over $3,000 a month and two bedrooms are over $5,000 a month. Maybe housing prices are going down where you live but that is not the case for the majority of communities in this country.
The reason there are more job openings is because the economy is booming and the reason more people are quitting jobs is because they are moving on to better paying ones.

4.9% unemployment, what a disaster! It's Obama's fault, we were so much better off with a republican in the White House and losing 700,000+ jobs a month.

149 innocent people were exonerated in 2015 which is exactly why the death penalty should be abolished. Who knows how many more innocent people are in prison or have been executed.

California does pay more for gas because of the special blend and higher tax at the pump. The special blend is to reduce pollution which is worth the price. California is a leader not a follower, always has been. The California blend should be the industry standard and if a cleaner blend can be developed it should be.
A consumer watchdog group feels that oil companies purposely keep supplies low that also drive up the price. Everyone knows that taxpayer subsidized big oil would never do anything like that.
