Dem Economist Predicts Most Explosive Recovery Ever. Democrats Predictably Horrified

By Megan Fox

Democrats have finally admitted that economic recovery for the American people means defeat for them. They would rather watch us suffer so they can beat Donald Trump. Politico published an article called “The General Election Scenario That Democrats Are Dreading,” which confirms what we’ve all been suspecting: the longer the lockdown continues and Americans are out of work, the happier Democrats are.

What kind of people root for economic ruin over recovery? Democrats.

Jason Furman, a Harvard professor and economist who worked for Barack Obama, gave a presentation in April to a group of bipartisan officials about the coming economic recovery. Democrats on the call were reportedly terrified.

“We are about to see the best economic data we’ve seen in the history of this country,” he said.

The former cabinet secretaries and Federal Reserve chairs in the Zoom boxes were confused, though some of the Republicans may have been newly relieved and some of the Democrats suddenly concerned.

“Everyone looked puzzled and thought I had misspoken,” Furman said in an interview. Instead of forecasting a prolonged depression-level economic catastrophe, Furman laid out a detailed case for why the months preceding the November election could offer Trump the chance to brag — truthfully — about the most explosive monthly employment numbers and GDP growth ever.

Furman has been making the rounds trying to warn Democrats that their reliance on a bad economy to defeat Trump is going to backfire. The economy is making a comeback and it’s going to be great—it’s going to break records. Instead of being happy for Americans who might not lose their life savings after the COVID lockdown disaster, Democrats are peeing their pants in misery.

Furman’s counterintuitive pitch has caused some Democrats, especially Obama alumni, around Washington to panic. “This is my big worry,” said a former Obama White House official who is still close to the former president. Asked about the level of concern among top party officials, he said, “It’s high — high, high, high, high.”

Imagine! Obama officials worried that we will recover our wealth! If you ever had any thoughts that Democrats care about you at all, please stop it. They don’t. They’d rather watch you starve on the street than lose an election.

There’s no stopping recovery as America opens and turns on the lights.
