Contrary to Trump's assertions, the country is better off with Democrats in charge.

The president held a campaign rally for Marsha Blackburn in Johnson City last night.

"A Democratic takeover of Congress will plunge our country into gridlock and chaos and take away all of the wealth that you've earned over the last 20 months," Trump warned, claiming without evidence that the stock market would plummet, 401(k)s disappear, taxes rise beyond "your wildest imagination," and crime go through the roof.

The last time the stock market started tanking was when GWB was president and, yes, 401(k)s did take a hit. 401(k)s recovered while Obama was president.

Yes, taxes may rise, but the deficit will fall as it did when Clinton was president.

Especially for the citizens of the State of Tennessee, prior to Obama, could you get health insurance, when not working for a large organization, if you had a pre-existing condition? No.
