And he still got us out of a recession last time

D1 - the economic recovery was extremely slow and forced people out of the labor force. Raised taxes, increased gov regulation, and fundamentally transforming our healthcare industry during times of recession were extreme headwinds to get out of the 08 recession. The slow recovery is well documented. I find it hard to agree with anyone stating that the previous administration economic recovery was good. It was the ultimate buy-low scenario for an administration, and they ended up creating significant headwinds to get people back to work. Also, take into consideration that the 08 crisis has its origin with subprime lending practices from fannie mae/freddie mac without proper risk mitigations and monitoring from clinton admin under sec of hud cuomo. And congress and the bush admin failed to recognize the warning signs and mitigate the risks before it turned into a full blown crisis.

Yeah, ensuring that everyone who works a 40-hour week makes a minimum of $31,200 a year sounds like a disastrous idea.

Increasing pay without increasing output is never a good idea. I'm all for helping people, but this isn't the way to do it. We already see companies struggle with this, or work around it by limiting hours to avoid paying out healthcare, automating jobs to have less workers, or just straight up struggling to stay afloat like many small businesses.
