Cramer on the Rocket Ship Economy

We are bombarded with political television advertisements, but one, in particular, stood out to me. It was Kevin Cramer's ad about how our current economy is a "rocket ship." I know many people question the validity of this statement, but I'm here to tell you that hes right on the money!

As a business owner and active community member, I have seen the benefits of our strong economy since President Trump's inauguration, but you dont have to believe me, there are statistics and facts that support, Kevin Cramer's statement.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, under President Trump, the unemployment rate has decreased from 4.8% to 3.9%. CNN has stated that this is a "generational low". The Wall Street Journal reported that the US has the lowest level of unemployment benefit applications since the end of 1969.

The consumer confidence has reached its highest level in 18 years. The director of economic indicators at the Conference Board, Lynn Franco, stated in September that "these historically high confidence levels should continue to support healthy consumer spending, and should be welcome news for retailers as they begin gearing up for the holiday season." As reported by CNBC at the end of September.

This is just more proof that President Trump's tax cuts are working and helping all US citizens and businesses. I am supporting Kevin Cramer because his platform is pro-growth agenda who supports the initiatives that are contributing to our "rocket ship" economy!
