Unemployment is at its lowest point in 3+ years, and getting better every qtr. The stock market has had steady growth the last year. It just had its best qtr in over a decade, and is on its way to break the all-time high. Consumer confidence is at its highest point in 4+ years. The GDP has had steady growth for the last 18 months and just had its biggest qtr increase in 2 years. The housing market has started to clear the books and it has shown its best performance in years. With home prices starting to climb, sales becoming strong, and interest rates going up. The American auto industry, once on the brink of not existing anymore, has come back very strong and shown record profits. All signs for the last year have pointed to a much stronger, ever improving economy, and they have proved true. Clearly all of this good news is not because of anything the republicans have done!
