There is no reason to settle for the pitiful economy of the past eight years. Economic growth of 1-2 percent is the worst economic recovery record in American history. Only stifling regulations and an over-taxed economy could produce this result.
Historically, the American economy has averaged 3-4 percent economic growth and it can do so again. All that is needed is the absence of roadblocks -- high taxes, suffocating regulation, arbitrary executive actions. Eliminating these three things, even without any infrastructure spending, will do the trick.
Free markets don't need anything but freedom to do their work. Let the bureaucrats find something else to do. For whatever Donald Trump's faults might be, he doesn't hate capitalism and free markets. That cannot be said of his predecessor.
