Politicians election campaign promises can honestly be filled with a lot of garbage and this promise, blabbered by Barack Obama and other democrats is no exception. Lets be honest with ourselves, in a capitalist country like America, how do these politicians hope to make true these nonsensical promises. Do they intend to bribe these politicians to stop taking jobs with subsidies and incentives? This may be a solution, but it oversimplifies it more than it really is and the electorate deserve to know the truth as it is.
9. They will raise taxes on corporations

This brilliant rhetoric is unfortunately one of the most meaningless promises of politicians. For over two decades, republicans have been calling the rich the hardworking Americans. Now they refer to them as job creators. Now corporations are not just rich people calculating how many jobs to create and a marginal increase in taxes is not a major influence on whether or not these corporations or conglomerates of “hardworking Americans,” will create more jobs.
8. Why is the Federal Reserve still printing money?

Some political promises in election campaign emanate from one of the most ignorant questions of all time. Of course, sometimes we may all disagree with some of the highhanded ways of the Feds but let us be sincere with ourselves. Despite the fluctuations in value of all other investments out there – gold for example –the most stable investment throughout American history has been treasury bills.
7. Regulations are one of the factors crushing the economy

Let us get one of the most dumbfounding politicians election campaign promises straight; where would the US economy be without regulations. Factually speaking, nowhere. Yet our ignorant politicians would like to make us believe that a lawless economy would save us all.
6. Uncertainty about future taxes is what is stifling the economy

Amongst the meaningless promises of politicians during election time, this is most untrue. According to a survey conducted of almost every business in America today, it is clear that uncertain taxes are certainly not what is capable of stifling economic growth or recovery.

Well, well. Political promises in election campaign are supposed to show the electorate that you actually know what you are doing and not in reverse. Indeed some of these corporate subsidies are wanton, but cutting off tax breaks is certainly not in any way going to bring down the price of gas.
4. Immigrants are the lawbreakers and must be deported

The immediate past campaign was one of the politicians election campaign promises that stood out. For a nation built upon immigration and the promise of freedom and equal opportunity for all, after years of failing to gather votes, it eventually brought the one of nations most bankrupt businessmen to the oval office. It is hardly plausible and yet to be seen whether the mass deportation of immigrants would be the cure to lawlessness.
3. The Senate has for over … days failed to pass a budget

Most political promises in election campaign always have something to do with the senate. The most common: they are yet to pass a budget. Most of these politicians – especially those who have never run for office – rarely have a clue about the entire budget process, yet they claim to be gods of the entire budget process.
2. Obamacare is a means of government taking over our health care system

Well, of the politicians election campaign promises that took place last year, this was the most baffling. What explains it all is the plan to replace the Obamacare with a Trumpcare. Politicians rarely have a clue what goes on in the walls of power till they actually step into the shoes. Yet they are self-professed know-it-alls.
