Why has an economic recession occurred each time a Republican president is in office?

Republicans say their party represents fiscal responsibility and yet each time they are in charge, jobs disappear and wages stagnate.

Cute pole, OP.

Nevertheless, I'll answer: because Democrat's economic policies work for America, while Republican's do not. It really is that simple. Tickle down economics is a fairy tale. Tax cuts for the rich only serve to make the rich richer. Policies that serve only the wealthy... serve only the wealthy.

We can have a prosperous middle class, a thriving nation, a nation that lifts up everybody, educates its young, takes care of its elderly, and provides a high standard of living for everyone, or we can have billionaires being minted on a daily basis. We can't have both.

Think of money as a lubricant. If the rich hoard all their money, less money moves around, the machine of the economy is not lubricated, things slow down (recession) or even grind to a halt (the Great Depression).
