America's Economy Performs Better Under Democrats

House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer released a new report in September detailing how the American economy consistently performs better under Democratic presidents than Republican ones. Examining economic performance between 1949 and 2015, the report identifies what our economy could have looked like in 2016 had Democrats been in the White House during the entire 68 year period.

The analysis shows a clear pattern: when Democratic presidents are in office, the American economy performs better in every way.

House Democrats continue to advocate for policies that will support job creation and economic growth, such as the Make It In America plan.
