After sneeringly dismissing the raises and bonuses many workers enjoyed due to the GOP tax cut as “crumbs,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is now desperately trying to put a negative spin on the latest eye-popping economic news.

A quick round-up: an unexpectedly high 223,000 jobs were created in May; unemployment fell to 3.8%, trying a record low set 49 years ago; in just one month, black unemployment plummeted from a previous record low of 6.6% to a new record low of 5.9 percent; and the Atlanta Federal Reserve just estimated that the recent quarterly GDP growth hit an annualized rate of 4.8%. That’s the kind of economic growth number that Barack Obama and his acolytes assured us was no longer possible, and that 1 to 2% growth was now the “new normal.” Turns out it was really just the old pathetic.

So when the economy under the Republicans is roaring like a lion in a Ferrari, how do the Democrats win over voters? They could renounce the kind of high tax, big government policies that kept growth stifled until recently, but they have no other platform. So Nancy Pelosi has taken on the unenviable task of trying to convince us that stupendous GDP growth and record low unemployment are just more meaningless crumbs.



Her spin is that the low unemployment numbers “mean little” to Americans who are struggling with the GOP’s “cruel, cynical health care sabotage campaign” (i.e., trying to root out Obamacare), which is “already spiking families’ premiums by double digits.”

I hate to bring this up – well, actually, I don’t – but under Obamacare, the bill Rep. Pelosi had to pass so she could find out what was in it, premiums were already spiking by double digits, and in some cases, triple digits. Plus Americans won't have to worry so much about premiums now that there are a growing number of good full-time jobs with benefits, which under the Democrats was like trying to find a MAGA cap in Barbra Streisand's closet.

Rep. Pelosi went on, “Democrats know that the American people deserve A Better Deal, with Better Jobs, Better Wages and a Better Future…We are committed to creating millions of new good-paying jobs and raising wages, lowering the soaring cost of living for families and giving every American the tools to succeed in the 21st Century economy.”

Wow, that sounds great! So…how are you gonna do that? By raising taxes on businesses? And if you know how to do it, why didn’t you do it when you had the chance? From 2008 to 2010, Democrats controlled both Congress and the White House. What they gave us was Obamacare, which along with other big government policies, helped depress GDP growth and hiring for years past the official end of the recession. It’s one thing to toss out cotton candy phrases like “Better Jobs, Better Wages.” But how do you plan to do that now when you seemed utterly incapable of it the last time you were in charge?

Personally, I’d say that anyone who can dismiss a two dollar-an-hour raise, a $1000 bonus, 4.8% GDP growth and record low unemployment as “crumbs” really takes the cake.

    Gov. Mike! This is not a remark about your story, but it is a suggestion for a guest on your show. There is a young man I follow on Twitter & Facebook that it very level headed & vocal about the shenanigans of today. He is a high school student with a strong voice about the things we are all concerned about. He could be a possible leader of the future with a good head on his shoulders. His name is CJ Pearson from Augusta, Ga. Thanks for all your hard work making sure we know what we need to know! Jayne Scott

    The News, politicians, talk shows, Hollywood are a well oiled machine working in unison. They have controlled the narrative for so long that finally people are waking up to their devices and dividing ways.
    We need to do a better job on exposing them personally like they have been doing to so many. It does not sound godly as we need to break these chains and takedown the high profile media owners. So much dirt I’m sure can be brought up to show true colors and knock them off the high horse. Who is strong enough to take on the challenge.

    Mike,

    My wife is a Liberal who thinks Republicans are mean and do little for the little people. I almost have to agree with her on Puerto Rico. Why don't we call on all the Utility companies to volunteer one truck and two men to go there in emergencies and fix the problem. They would do it in a heartbeat and it wouldn't costs us anything. It is sad how long it is taking to help those people.

    nancy and like ilk are economic idiots. If you have ever listened to Austin Goolsby on Fox you know they are economically out of touch with reality. Of course crooks don't know what is going on with the rest of the world. nancy, Schumer and Reid are living proof of Harry Truman's axiom "You can't get rich in politics. You must be a crook." Does Barry come to mind.? Where did he get rich? They have nothing to offer but take away all Trump has done in less than 18 months? really? I guess dems think the world is made up of people who can't add or evaluate stats. The summit is now going to be icing on the cake. Jerusalem will be something GOP can throw back in their face. Two presidents promised and failed. Two. + Bush. Then there is the Iran deal to throw in their face. All it takes is faces and failures of the dems. november is going to be interesting. Rooster Cogburn said it best. "Long on promise, short on posse." GOP doesn't need anything new, all they have to say is what the libs are for: everyone but Americans and what they are against: everything that benefits Americans.

    I get turn off with all of the political bicker, but I look at the results of the last 18 months, it looks like we don't need a politician in Washington we just need a person that cares about our country and knows how to get things done, I am happy how President Trump is getting it done despite the opposition trying to stop everything, I just think what could have been accomplished if all of the parties worked together.
    Bless President Trump, if he runs in 2020 he has my vote, and I'm not Russian.

    Everyone mentions. including you, the Dems controlled Congress and the White House from 2008 to 2010, but they always leave out 2006 to 2008 when they had actual control of Congress and used military war financing to get the White House to sign there bills. SIGN THIS OR WE DON'T BRING COMBAT FINANCING UP FOR A VOTE. It was my roughest two years of service after being deployed constantly from 1998. Remember, the Army came home after the liberation of Kuwait, the Air Force and Navy never did.

    For such a time as this. I believe God has placed Donald Trump as our president. Yes, I also believe that God is in control over the affairs of men both good and bad. My wife and I have placed our hope in Jesus Christ and seriously want to preach the Gospel of Salvation so sinners can be forgiven of their sins. Yes, Jesus is coming back and I want to remain faithful to His commandments until He takes me home.

  • John Mercer

    06/02/2018 11:27 AM

    So, how are we gonna keep them down on the farm? It occurs to me that there should be more effort placed on transitioning Pelosi supporters to the Trump administration's realities. Target them with polls to expose their hypocracy by keeping Pelosi in office.

    It certainly is time for term limits that make sense. We need Statesmen in Congress instead of life-long politicians; people who go to Washington to serve the nation and then go home to join the working class people that make this country great.

    We need to make it manditory that congress men and women must fall under the same laws that they pass for us, whether it be taxation, health care, or other influences. We give Caesar what is Caesar's, but give the people back the God that we worship.

    I'm proud to have met you at the American Council of Engineering Companies convention a few years back where I got to shake your hand.

    God Bless and keep up the good work. JM

    As usual Governor your commentary is spot on. But remember this, the very liberal left and it's Democratic machine never give up. Also the indoctrination centers, our public schools and the university system are cranking out a new batch of Bernie clones and converted Democratic voter's. This is the real problem. As you know most of these converts have had their common sense drilled out of them. We can't rest on these gains that President Trump has accomplished. These new mindless drones, unfortunately, are the countries future. How do we win them back over when facts and common sense don't work on them.

    Speaking of healthcare (Obamacare). We decided we didn't want the Feds and insurance companies making our healthcare decisions. We opted for Christian Healthcare Ministries, a medi-share plan. It is so much better and cheaper than any other option. It is hard to understand why the federal government can't do something like that. But, better to help fellow Christians than to pay for abortions, and other sick things like sex change operations. Pleas encourage medical share type plans when looking at abolishing Obamacare.

    Tax Cuts: While the tax cuts helped many earners, and she's a fool to dismiss them from her taxpayer-funded ivory tower, it actually hurt us. My wife and I are both professionals earning a decent wage, but haven't saved a whole lot not because of luxury items but because we put two kids through college. Health care and college costs have skyrocketed over the years, with the former getting more press because of the recent huge increases. Our out-of-pocket costs have more than tripled in the past three years or so thanks to Obamacare -- why does it cost so much to help so few? (Rhetorical -- anytime gov't is added to the equation we can guess how costs/taxes will go). Now, my father passed away, and we received some some taxable income from a pension fund, then our company did well (before the tax cuts) and our bonus was larger than usual. Net result: bumped up a bracket, lost some deductions, got hit with a huge tax bill, and now are tapping our retirement brokerage account to pay the quarterly payments this year. Our tax guy says we are at that point where we are not "rich" as most people would think, not making millions (more like a tenth of a million), but it's the "wrong" type of earning and is taxed heavily. He noted that the relentless attack on "the rich" is sweeping up a lot of upper middle incomers with nest eggs saved over decades (like us) and invested in brokerage accounts. In our case, exercising stock options to pay the tax bill results in additional ordinary income taxed at personal rates. In effect, we don't have such a large account that we can live on the long-term gains, and don't want to touch our retirement accounts, so get hit by ordinary income tax. I don't claim to understand it, but my CPA does, and says the only way to avoid it is to halve our income or double our investments. The former the liberals would love, of course, except we wouldn't have as much to be taxed so they'd lose in the end, and the latter is unlikely unless we win the lottery. We're right where the libs want us, paying for them and suffering as a result. OK, we're not going hungry, but canceled a planned family vacation because the money went to pay taxes instead, the last before our younger son is on his own. I can already here the outrage from those who say that's no hardship, but we worked HARD for decades to earn our money, 60-80 hours a week for years on end, to have it taken away by those who claim we didn't earn that and owe it to those who didn't. And the Republicans go right along with it, and a huge debt hike, with no border security, increasing funding for social programs like Planned Parenthood, etc. etc. etc. Color me disgusted...

    And where would we be if Obama had not left Trump a decent economy after the 2008 Republican recession! Where will we be now that we have eliminated all the regulations to protect ourselves? I sense that you hate Democrats and you can't believe they can do anything right!

But, better to help fellow Christians than to pay for abortions, and other sick things like sex change operations. Pleas encourage medical share type plans when looking at abolishing Obamacare.

    Ms Pelosi is an elitist left wing partisan hack who only cares about getting and maintaining power, just like all control freaks

    Tax Cuts: While the tax cuts helped many earners, and she's a fool to dismiss them from her taxpayer-funded ivory tower, it actually hurt us. My wife and I are both professionals earning a decent wage, but haven't saved a whole lot not because of luxury items but because we put two kids through college. Health care and college costs have skyrocketed over the years, with the former getting more press because of the recent huge increases. Our out-of-pocket costs have more than tripled in the past three years or so thanks to Obamacare -- why does it cost so much to help so few? (Rhetorical -- anytime gov't is added to the equation we can guess how costs/taxes will go). Now, my father passed away, and we received some some taxable income from a pension fund, then our company did well (before the tax cuts) and our bonus was larger than usual. Net result: bumped up a bracket, lost some deductions, got hit with a huge tax bill, and now are tapping our retirement brokerage account to pay the quarterly payments this year. Our tax guy says we are at that point where we are not "rich" as most people would think, not making millions (more like a tenth of a million), but it's the "wrong" type of earning and is taxed heavily. He noted that the relentless attack on "the rich" is sweeping up a lot of upper middle incomers with nest eggs saved over decades (like us) and invested in brokerage accounts. In our case, exercising stock options to pay the tax bill results in additional ordinary income taxed at personal rates. In effect, we don't have such a large account that we can live on the long-term gains, and don't want to touch our retirement accounts, so get hit by ordinary income tax. I don't claim to understand it, but my CPA does, and says the only way to avoid it is to halve our income or double our investments. The former the liberals would love, of course, except we wouldn't have as much to be taxed so they'd lose in the end, and the latter is unlikely unless we win the lottery. We're right where the libs want us, paying for them and suffering as a result. OK, we're not going hungry, but canceled a planned family vacation because the money went to pay taxes instead, the last before our younger son is on his own. I can already here the outrage from those who say that's no hardship, but we worked HARD for decades to earn our money, 60-80 hours a week for years on end, to have it taken away by those who claim we didn't earn that and owe it to those who didn't. And the Republicans go right along with it, and a huge debt hike, with no border security, increasing funding for social programs like Planned Parenthood, etc. etc. etc. Color me disgusted...

    And where would we be if Obama had not left Trump a decent economy after the 2008 Republican recession! Where will we be now that we have eliminated all the regulations to protect ourselves? I sense that you hate Democrats and you can't believe they can do anything right!
