Economic Recovery

During the Obama administration, hardworking Americans endured the slowest economic recovery in modern times when it comes to economic growth and income growth. But because of historic tax reform and Republican efforts to decrease unnecessary regulations, our economy is now booming.

Since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into law by President Trump, we have experienced record low unemployment, including the lowest rates in history for women, the disabled, African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Asian-Americans and youth. For the first time in history, we have more job openings than we have people looking for work. We're experiencing real wage growth for the first time in a decade and blue-collar workers are seeing the biggest increase. 

Despite experts saying that manufacturing jobs would never come back without a "magic wand", manufacturing jobs have increased dramatically under President Trump. And for the first time in a decade American recaptured the title of "most competitive economy in the word."

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was "built for growth", to encourage American companies to build and grow here, instead of overseas. We're already seeing the results of these decisions and I believe the best is yet to come.
