Pre-Pandemic Economy

Remember, the economy was getting better from 2009 to 2017, at a rate Obama’s critics called “anemic”. When Trump took over the economy improved at the same rate, but the deficit had been going down under Obama and skyrocketed under Trump, plunging us into record-breaking debt.  Trump spent money to bail out farmers and industries hurt by his trade war while he cut taxes for the rich.  That was not sustainable.  That was before the pandemic hit.
