Sorry, the economy has not improved

For the writer (Letters, Aug. 19) suggesting that the economy has improved, sorry but the economy has not improved.

The stock market is still not at the level it was when George Bush crashed the economy.

The stock market is better than it was, but that’s because corporations got a 30 percent tax break. A windfall that is coming out of your pocket. Wouldn’t your business look better if you did not pay corporate tax?

With corporations not paying tax, who is going to pay for the cost of government?

Finally, take a look at the increase in the U.S. national debt. Trump is buying the financial picture with government spending and corporate tax cuts. Get it?
