I just read an article that claimed to show how Obama’s economy had out-performed Reagan’s … except it used apple/orange comparisons like dollar values, numbers of jobs created, and the unemployment rate.
I decided to see for myself how the Reagan and Obama economies compared by using an apple/apple statistic.
I think this clearly illustrates the value of Conservative over Liberal economic policies. Both presidents inherited failing economies, but President Reagan (R) implemented hard-line Conservative policies, while President Obama (D) implemented hard-line Liberal policies. It’s very easy to see which one put more people back to work.
