Jerry Bowyer: The American Economy and Election 2018
You know that recent massive market sell-off?—The one that dropped over 1,000 points from the Dow in just 2 days? I was a reminder that –when it comes to the economy—we’re not out of the woods yet. And if Democrats win the mid-terms, we could get more shocks like we saw in early October. The polarized politics of our day, the mob tactics, and the attacks on the President and his party have dominated the news. I fear we’ve lost sight of the economic reasons to vote in November. The tax cut passed last year and boosted every sector of the economy. Republicans want to pass another one which could extend those gains for years. Democrats want to repeal the last one. Republicans want to unleash business; Democrats want to tighten the leash. The election is on us: If you’re interested in a strong economy and a strong stock market, you need to vote for growth policies in November.
