We elected a reality star for our president, people, and we are going to be suffering the consequences for the next eight years. However, many Republicans are saying that they “suffered” under the Obama administration, now we should have to deal with President Donald Trump. Did they really suffer, though?
Scott Mednick penned an epic response to this question. It read in part:
“…Gays and Lesbians can now marry and enjoy the benefits they had been deprived of. Has this caused your suffering?
“When Obama took office, the Dow was 6,626. Now it is 19,875. Has this caused your suffering?”
“We had 82 straight months of private sector job growth – the longest streak in the history of the United States. Has this caused your suffering?”
“Especially considering where the economy was when he took over, an amazing 11.3 million new jobs were created under President Obama (far more than President Bush). Has this caused your suffering?”
“Obama has taken Unemployment from 10% down to 4.7%. Has this caused your suffering?”
“…Obama added Billions of dollars to mental health care for our Veterans. Has this caused your suffering?”
“Consumer confidence has gone from 37.7 to 98.1 during Obama’s tenure. Has this caused your suffering?”
The Republicans, meanwhile, are planning to tear apart our health care system. President Donald Trump has signed discriminatory Muslim bans. This is real suffering. You Republicans are just whiny bitches.
