If you check, you'll find that most often one or both houses of congress are controlled by the opposite party in the white house. Our economy took the hit while G. Bush was pres, starting when dems took control of the house and senate in '06. The most recent period when one party controlled all 3 houses was 2008 - 2010. Dems. Look what happened to incomes - black, white and hispanic during that period. From 2008 'til 2013, declining incomes, virtually no GDP growth, and unemployment higher now than in 2008, 7.8 vs. 7.9(which is a huge understatement). Never mind, just keep your childish, racist attitude, Kyll-Why-T.
