Trump’s Big-Government Budget Plan | James Capretta   1 comment

Trump's Big-Government Budget PlanDonald Trump issued a revised economic plan last week, and claimed it would create 25 million new jobs over ten years, driven by 4 percent real annual growth. Real growth from 1983 through 2000 — the long period of expansion started under Ronald Reagan that many now understandably look back on with such fondness — averaged just 3.8 percent annually. Beating that over the coming decade would be remarkable, and highly unlikely, given that growth has topped 4 percent in only three of the last 61 quarters.

It should surprise no one at this point to hear Donald Trump make over-the-top promises. He’s been doing that his entire adult life, and especially over the last year.

The Status Quo Plus More Spending

Trump’s supporters say they are attracted to him because he is breaking all the normal rules, and it is certainly true that he has defied political convention in the way he has run his campaign. But with respect to policy — what he would actually do if elected — Trump invariably tells his supporters what they want to hear, whether it is true or not. That’s nothing if not typical for a presidential candidate.

  1. THANK YOU FOR THIS POST!!! I FOR ONE AM A CONSPIRACY REALIST, WHO IS NOT SUPPORTING ANYBODY AND/OR ANY POLITICAL PARTY, I DO NOT CARE FOR ANY OF THEM AND DO NOT WANT THEM. TRUMP AND HILLARY ARE BOTH CORRUPT, HILLARY HAD MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO LIVE A CORRUPTED LIFE IN GOVERNMENT, AND TRUMP LEADING A LIFE OF CORRUPTION MORE TOWARD CIVILIAN NATURE. CORRUPTION IS CORRUPTION REGARDLESS OF PARTIES OR ANY LABEL. TRUMP’S TIES TO MOBSTERS ARE NO DIFFERENT THAN HILLARY’S TIES TO TERRORISTS, BOTH HAVE A PLATFORM OF DESTRUCTION AND EROSION ACCOMPLISHING NOTHING FOR OUR CHILDREN AND FAMILY LIFE. I HAVE BEEN PATRIOTIC IN THE PAST, AND NOW FIND MYSELF IN A “PHYSICAL” STATE OF MOURNING, AS MY LATE FATHER WAS A WORLD WAR II VETERAN HAVING HAD TWO SHIPS BOMBED UP FROM UNDERNEATH HIM IN THE WAR. I AM NOT IN A SPIRITUAL STATE OF MOURNING, AS I AM EVERYDAY LOOKING FORWARD TO THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST, AS I KNOW DEFINITELY IS THE ONE AND ONLY SOLUTION THAT CAN EVER EXIST. PHYSICALLY I AM MISERABLE, BUT SPIRITUALLY I AM HAPPY, KNOWING THERE IS COMING A NEW HEAVENS AND EARTH WITHOUT ANY SIN, CORRUPTION, EVIL, NO HOSPITALS, NO DEATH, AND NO CEMETERIES. THANK OUR HEAVENLY FATHER YAHVEH, NO MORE POLITICIANS, AND AN IMMORTAL LIFE WE SHALL LIVE, AND CONDUCT OUR LIVES ACCORDING TO HIS WILL. I HAVE MADE AN ULTIMATE COMMITMENT TO MYSELF AND MY SOUL, TO BE LOYAL TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER YAHVEH AND NOT BE PATRIOTIC, UNTIL EVERY SINGLE MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD RETURN AND LIVE TO THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. I SHALL ON THE PENALTY OF DEATH NOT ACCEPT THE MARK OF THE BEAST, NOR AM I GOING TO FOLLOW A CROWD. A MAVERICK I SHALL BE.
