Finally, and critically the Marxist think tank said, the 2014 national exit poll highlights the extent to which voter pessimism, fear, and anxieties about the economic future benefited Republicans despite the party’s abysmal ratings in Congress. Keeping in mind that no one exit poll explains voting trends that develop over time, it is notable that 65 percent of 2014 voters said the country was “seriously off on the wrong track,” and 69 percent of this bloc voted Republican. Seventy percent of voters rated the national economy as “not so good” or “poor,” and 64 percent of them voted Republican. Fifty-nine percent of 2014 voters believe economic conditions are “poor and staying the same” or “getting worse,” and more than 6 in 10 of these voters chose Republicans.
The reasons for these numbers are because the policies of this regime have brought on the pessimism that fuels the numbers. We start with the fiasco that was called the stimulus program. This massive spending fiasco caused an incredible rise in the national debt and lined the pockets of Obama supporters through the misguided green energy policies of this regime. In addition these same misguided energy policies have curbed the growth of the American economy by not allowing the pipeline and also by shutting down the coal industry. These same misguided policies have enabled the EPA to curtail the growth of the American economy through punishing regulations on all business.
Obamacare has done untold harm to our economy as well through more government regulations and government controls. In addition, the taxes, many of them concealed as fees, have hurt all aspects of the medical industry including manufacturing. The requirements placed upon all business, but especially small business has done untold harm to the employment picture.
The additional fees and regulations, including the blackmail of the banks by the DOJ, have placed tremendous burdens on the overall economy. The regime has truly told business, you are not wanted in the United States if your goal is profit. How foolish the regime is. Not only is profit critical to business, profit is critical to a robust and expanding economy. The idea business is making too much profit makes no sense for it is profit that finances innovation and expansion; the very essence of a prosperous nation and society.
The pessimism of the voter is warranted because it is real and caused by the very policies of Obama; the very policies the Marxists support. This pessimism will grow until the policies of the Marxists are reversed.
