-wages adjusted for inflation are the same as they've been for decades. but it's certainly been worse for the decades before that and into the great depression.
-unemployment is low, and most economists
say it's at essentially full employment. even measured by 'real' unemployment, it's only as bad as it was during bush. id say it's a new normal and the president shouldn't be blamed for it not being even better.
-housing prices are up but that's a sign of a good economy. at least it's easier to get a loan.
-gun shootings are on the rise. but it's only the democrats who are making any proposals to do anything about it. on this point, mary is more of a democrat anyway. (she argues a lot with me about it but that's only because i take the more radically progressive views sometimes) over ninety percent of gun researchers say more gun control is better than none when it comes to homicides.
-healthcare costs are rising slower than if obamacare never passed. obamacare is a mixed bag but at least this much can be said about it. plus the millions with healthcare now, and fewer people dying. it's the capitalist theory in practice that causes so many bad health outcomes. i dont see republicans offering any solutions about healthcare costs or outcomes. (other than the extreme 'people dont have a right to health care' stuff but that's not a real solution) only sanders has sensible ideas to implement single payer which could cut healthcare costs in half from the government.
-global temperatures are the highest they've been in recent history. but that's not the problem of people who at least recognize that global warming is something that needs addressed.
-gas prices are down.
-inflation for basic things like food is up, but it goes up every year regardless of the president.
-the deficit is much lower than when obama has taken office. i'd like to see someone more aggressive on this, but at least it's something.
-the stock market is at historical levels.
