You forget that BO blamed Bush for what he inherited.....and now you give credit to BO for 'turning around that economy' when he, in fact, made it much worse by doubling the National Debt, having five years in a row of over $1T in our annual deficit (all while claiming he was cutting the Bush deficit in half, when he actually only cut his OWN deficits in half during his last three years and put the deficit back to the same Bush numbers).
It didn't have to 'take serious money from the government to turn' things around, Bob....especially not to the tune of $83B per MONTH for 8 years all on the taxpayers' backs. It IS the taxpayers' money and NOT the government's money, right? He didn't have to 'forgive' billions of dollars of money owed via student loans and turn around and give Iran $1.7B in cash in the middle of the night. The 'economy' NEVER moved up under BO. It remained stagnant the entire time.
As for the 'financial industry' getting greedy.....You also seem to forget that not only did Clinton cause the housing crash by issuing orders to ease the lending policies of the banks for mortgages to people who would have never qualified under normal circumstances, but BO in his last two years issued the same exact orders all over again in order to make 'home sales' look better for the Dems' policies. The rules that Dodd/Frank imposed didn't control anything other than to force small banks in small communities to shutter their doors and allow bigger banks to take over them so, just like with the health insurance companies, a monopoly has occurred. Didn't the government go after Microsoft for being a monopoly because they controlled the entire industry at one point? MaBell years ago was forced to break up for the same reasons. Dodd/Frank was another way for the Dems to repay their big donor base because if you look at the actual numbers, you will see that those huge financial industries who benefited were all Dem donors. They went after the head of Wells Fargo, put him in jail for a year (thanks to Weismann on the Mueller team now), and had that conviction overturned by SCOTUS. IF the economy was going to honestly get turned around, the natural way to do it is to allow companies to fail and recover via bankruptcy or full closure instead of bailouts.
But your fantasy world is full of rose colored liberal glasses......dream on.
