My stocks are doing so-so, near all time highs and growing at same rate for 10 years or so. No complaints but not getting rich. My grocery bills are definitely up 20% or more. Healthcare cost is way up and raising at a rate faster than the last 5 years. Not that I need the money but overall I am not feeling any financial pain nor am I feeling the need to celebrate a windfall. How about you?
Obama inherited an economy that was in need emergency resuscitation and he managed, in spite of a Republican Congress that vowed to sabotage anything he did, to nurse it back to health and pass a robust economy with a 4% unemployment rate on to Trump. Trump is riding the Obama wave and claiming credit, I doubt he could have done as well.
