      I am of an age where I have I observed the difference between republican & dem policies for quite a few years. Except for the post WW II years, where the income tax for the wealthy was functionally 70% which made the country very affluent, dems always do better with the economy. The conservatives always say the dems are "tax & spend" but the repubs always run up huge deficits because they cater to their wealthy benefactors by cutting taxes on the wealthy. And, probably, so they can cut social programs. They also always seem to have a need to invade somewhere. (Think Granada & panama for Reagan). Repubs paint themselves as being the fiscally responsible party who will boost the economy but they are, in fact, the opposite. Wish that would be more publized. Wish dems would work on changing that narrative.
