LS
I haven't read the whole article (because I hate reading boring stats)but the statistics you use are 5 years old, 2014

"In 2014, 63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen reported that they used at least one welfare program, compared to 35 percent of native-headed households."

Hope some more timely statistics can be produced if you want to stick it to a group

77% seem to be happy enough to believe EU membership is a good thing.

S&P 500 rises for a third day in a row, hits new high for 2019

Source: CNBC
“The move in tech, it almost feels like they’re sniffing out something is coming” on the U.S.-China trade front, said Quincy Krosby, chief market strategist at Prudential Financial. “The moves in the semis and Apple are suggesting a deal may be in the coming weeks; perhaps not at the end of March, but sometime in the near future.”
Equities also got a boost Wednesday after the Commerce Department said nondefense durable goods orders posted their largest increase in six months in January, rising 0.8 percent. Overall durable goods orders also rose 0.4 percent while economists polled by Refinitiv expected a decline of 0.5 percent.

Meanwhile, U.S. construction spending posted its biggest increase in nine months, rising 1.3 percent in January. The leap was driven by a surge in public-project investments.

US Department of Labor announces 3.5% Wage Growth

March 12, 2019

The Bureau of Labor Statistics released data that shows annual inflation at 1.5% and wage growth at 3.5% -- a big advantage for workers in the US.
The index for all items less food and energy rose 2.1 percent over the last 12 months, a slightly smaller figure than the 2.2-percent increase for the period ending January. The food index rose 2.0 percent over the past year, its largest 12-month increase since the period ending April 2015. In contrast, the energy index declined 5.0 percent over the last 12 months.

Lower fuel costs are a boon to the working class (ask France).

Wage growth of 3.5% with inflation at 1.5% means higher actual income, more money in the pockets of workers, and increased purchasing or saving power.

It has been two years since the Trump Tariff Doctrine went into effect. The Cheerleaders for Failure were hoping for economic disaster and a crushing blow upon US consumers. Like most everything else that is bad and that they cheer, they have been deada55 wrong.

Brigadiers will not be happy.

OPTIMISM. MARKET DRIVER. STEADY WINNING.

‘We’re tired of being right’ about the border, budget director says on Trump’s new wall money request

March 11, 2019
Source: CNBC
Russell Vought, acting White House budget director, said Monday security at the southern U.S. border is “deteriorating by the day,” and he’s blaming Democrats for refusing to approve President Donald Trump’s repeated requests for wall funding.

“This is an area of where we’re tired of being right,” Vought said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box, ” referring to a government report of a record number of migrant families crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

The White House is expected to release Trump’s budget proposal for fiscal year 2020 on Monday. It is expected to seek $8.6 billion from Congress for additional barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border.

That amount would be on top of the funds Trump will redirect from other programs as part of his national emergency, said Vought, who’s minding the Office of Management and Budget after previous OMB head Mick Mulvaney left the agency to become the president’s acting chief of staff.

Trump’s declaration last month, aimed at circumventing Congress to pay for his wall, is currently being challenged by more than a dozen states. The states said Trump is “trying to rob funds that were allocated by Congress legally to various states.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said they had hoped Trump “learned his lesson” after failing to get his wall funding following the partial government shutdown earlier this year.

“Congress refused to fund his wall and he was forced to admit defeat and reopen the government. The same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again,” they said in a joint statement Sunday.

According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, more than 76,000 migrants crossed the U.S.-Mexico border last month, more than double the number from the same period last year. The figures help Trump’s case for his border emergency, albeit one built around a humanitarian crisis and not security.

Oc-Co Loco seeks to make banks liable for accidents created by borrowers

This is what socialism looks like -- the tyranny of the mob. Interrogating Wells Fargo CEO Timothy Sloan about the bank’s role in financing private projects that she considers objectionable, such as oil pipelines and prisons.

She also demanded to know why the bank should not be held financially liable for the impacts of oil spills and even the effects of climate change for lending money to a project that had an accident. Really? Hold the bank accountable for lending money to an automobile manufacturer or purchaser involved in an accident? The lender? Really?

All LIBs do is lie, cry and blame. If stupid could fly, Oc-Co Loco would be a jet.

This is what socialism looks like.
Rep. Maxine Waters, the California Democrat who runs the powerful House Financial Services Committee, called for the removal of Wells Fargo CEO Tim Sloan after news that he received a $2 million bonus as part of his 2018 pay package.

The San Francisco-based bank disclosed Sloan's compensation late Wednesday, revealing that the executive got a 5 percent increase in total pay to $18.4 million, including the $2 million bonus, for his work in 2018.

"It is outrageous and wholly inappropriate that the bank has rewarded Mr. Sloan with a $2 million bonus for 2018," Waters said in an emailed statement. She pointed out that last year, "federal regulators and authorities capped the bank's growth and fined the bank more than $3 billion for offenses such as improperly charging customers auto insurance and mortgage fees."
Stockholders and the board of directors determine compensation for employees, not government. If the government has an issue with legal issues involving the bank, that's one thing. Determining how much someone should be compensated for their work is not the role of any government representative or body.
