The name assigned to the second great economic depression, started in 2008, so as to differentiate it from the one which spanned the late 1920’s to the mid/late 1930’s. This huge economic disaster began during the term of the criminal George W. Bush (W = worst). The roots of the Bush Depression can be traced to the Republican deregulatory, “voo-doo economic” policies initiated under Ronald Reagan, continued by subsequent Republicans, and brought to a head by Bush's twisted regime. This greed-based house of cards finally collapsed, sending the U.S. economy into turmoil.
I lost my job during the Bush Depression, and now I'm standing in the soup line.
