Democratic Senator Chris Murphy doubled-down on his party’s non-stop denial surrounding America’s robust economy over the weekend; bizarrely claiming that President Trump was taking Obama’s “strong economy” and “making it worse.”
Murphy slammed the President’s economic policies on social media, saying “job growth” has been slower under Donald Trump than his predecessor; writing “Your weekend reminder that Trump inherited a strong economy from Obama and made it worse. Facts are facts. Job growth has been slower than during last 18 month of Obama. Wage growth is much lower.”

“When corporations are doing well they no longer share with their employees. There was a time when the unemployment rate went down and it was a great thing. When people are working minimum wage jobs, or they’re working 2, 3, or 4 jobs to put food on the table… to simply say the unemployment rate went down just doesn’t get you there,” said Warren.

DEMOCRAT DENIAL: Pelosi, Perez BLAST Booming Economy as ‘RECKLESS’ and ‘RAW DEAL’
The Democratic Party continued to double-down on its predictions of “doom and gloom” surrounding the soaring US economy Friday; slamming June’s positive jobs report that showed a record number of Americans taking part in the labor force.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blasted the strong numbers as a “raw deal” on social media, saying “The June #JobsReport shows what is at stake from the brewing storm of rising health costs, spiraling trade uncertainty & an economy being hollowed out to enrich big corporations & the wealthiest 1 percent.”

DNC Chair Tom Perez echoed Pelosi’s comments Friday, saying President Trump’s “reckless policies are hurting millions of hardworking families.”
“With slow wage growth, rising health care premiums, and skyrocketing gas prices across the country, Donald Trump’s reckless policies are hurting millions of hardworking families,” said Perez in a written statement.
“Trump and Republicans in Congress have been so determined to undermine workers that they held a Supreme Court seat hostage for nearly a year in order to nominate an aggressively anti-union justice, who became the deciding vote in last week’s disgraceful decision in the Janus case,” he adds.
