Spinning the tax cut

The right is crowing about the number of new claims for unemployment has reached a 49 year low. They don't mention that this has been a steady trend over the last 8 years and instead tie it to the $1.5 trillion tax giveaway to the richest of the rich even as they acknowledge that the effects of this "stimulus" is fading.

In reality there was no stimulative effect from this giveaway but they are pretending the economic downturn we're experiencing is normal "fading" and hoping you'll forget that they promised us endless prosperity. 

The tale of the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft took another strange turn, it seems the pilots of the Ethiopian plane knew what the corrective action that Boeing recommended was, did that and then crashed anyway. More stories of incompetence at Boeing keep coming out. Boeing will have a hard time getting their reputation back.
