Rep. Eric Swalwell did what all Democrats do when they can’t spin something in their favor, they try changing the meaning of words and ideas to better fit what they’re trying to push and campaign on.
For example, the thriving economy under President Trump is a real thorn in the side of Democrats building up to this week’s midterms so Eric tried to literally redefine what makes the economy the economy … see for yourself.
The economy is NOT the stock market, the unemployment rate, or GDP. It’s YOU. Are you doing better, saving more, and looking at your kids and dreaming bigger? This @MarketWatch story shows for 3 out of 4 of us, the economy is not working. Let’s make it work for ALL. #TrumpSlump https://t.co/Is09AMmKbS

Ummm … what?
Those things are a huge part of the economy, Eric.
And guess what happens when you ask a stupid question:
Financial health is about responsibility. Saving more has nothing to do with with anything other than personal responsibility and choices. Same for looking at your kids and dreaming bigger.
But yes. In general, I'm doing a LOT better. Thanks for asking.

Literally everyone is doing better under this president. Stop with your BS. Wages are up. Everyone that wants A job can get one. This is the best economy of our lifetime.

This economy definitely does not suck.
My family is doing better, we are saving more and the economy is incredible for us in Ohio. Make the individual tax cuts permanent!!!!!

“Financially healthy” and financially better are 2 different things. The majority of Americans are financially better and on the road to being “healthy”. All thanks to more jobs, better pay, lower taxes, and even a better stock market.
This is what Trump did!

Republicans may not be all butterflies and rainbows but when it comes to making the economy work THEY GET IT DONE.
And no amount of switching up the definition or terms of the economy will change that, Eric.
Yes, I am. And in fact, my 401k is growing at 18%. That’s my retirement, so I am very glad that the stock market is growing.
My college students who will be graduating into the best economy of their lifetime are thrilled.
Hush, Debbie downer.

We may start calling him that.
I’m defenitely making more now Eric. Finally getting decent COLA raises as well. Thanks! Oh, and I’m saving a lot more too because of this boom.

Household income is up this year by $25k through a combination of hourly rate increases and additional hours worked. Able to put more into our 401k and still have more money in the bank each week. My family is doing much better.

If the economy is me, then the economy is going great. Thanks for asking.

Eric, I've had my best year in 11 years of in home sales because "homeowners" have more money to dream big.
