An economy that produces more than half a million jobs in a single month is a far cry from a recession.

It is so complicated, because this is one of the first times in history we've had so many recessionary indicators without one, but I do agree that we simply cannot call this situation a #Recession . It's just an expansion with #pricegouging .

So much of it is PERCEPTION.. Dems need to do a better job of marketing their accomplishments as well as the insane amount of profit some of these corporations are making!

Yes, true. However perception from Republicans is because they are driving up costs for profits. Many families don't understand this, they live daily with little attention on politics unless it comes from The Daily Mail. ???? Educate the uneducated.

My limited understanding is that the problem is twofold:

1) The extremely wealthy don't have quite enough, and

2) Everyone else has far too much already.

The question is: will those jobs pay a living wage and include benefits? It's crazy to me that the minimum wage is still $7.25/hour and that we've been fighting for $15/hour for so long that it actually should be more like $25/hour now just to afford to live a basic life.

Republicans live in a topsy-turvy world, so of course!
