JFK was a supply sider (cut taxes and government spending, spurs growth, generates more tax revenue in end) which is now seen as conservative policy-Reagan was a supply sider). Since thgen, Democrats have moved more and more to socialism (huge government, less capitalism, more taxes, divide a small pi). Those policies are disastrous.
Jimmy Carter economy Democrat
On assuming office in 1977, President Carter inherited an economy that was slowly emerging from a recession. He had severely criticized former President Ford for his failures to control inflation and relieve unemployment, but after four years of the Carter presidency, both inflation and unemployment were considerably worse than at the time of his inauguration. The annual inflation rate rose from 4.8% in 1976 to 6.8% in 1977, 9% in 1978, 11% in 1979, and hovered around 12% at the time of the 1980 election campaign. Although Carter had pledged to eliminate federal deficits, the deficit for the fiscal year 1979 totaled $27.7 billion, and that for 1980 was nearly $59 billion. With approximately 8 million people out of work, the unemployment rate had leveled off to a nationwide average of about 7.7% by the time of the election campaign, but it was considerably higher in some industrial states.

The lie of the improving economy under Obama

http://economyincrisis.org/content/is-americas-economy-really-improving "The truth is that the United State’s economy is unstable and in dire conditions."
Forbes " By any standards he’s been a bad President–idle, muddled, contradictory and weak. His one major achievement, ObamaCare, is likely to prove costly and inefficient. He has neglected U.S. defense and allowed Vladimir Putinto strut around the world stage almost unopposed. Obama’s Administration is crowded with enemies of business. If it has an ideology, it’s watered-down socialism. Obama has done nothing positive for the economy, and many of his decisions have been discouraging and obstructive to private enterprise."
Obama: economy is not improving. Your anti growth policies are dead wrong
The U.S. economy isn’t off to a great start in 2015. It’s looking so rotten that the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta just cut its growth projection to zero for the first three months of the year.That’s a big drop from the 1.9% growth forecast they started with in early February.
Some of the first quarter’s slowdown is no doubt due to an especially harsh winter. Yet nearly six years into the recovery from the Great Recession, the economy’s muddled progress seems inescapable. A long-awaited breakout remains elusive, suggesting that the economy’s direction has never been quite as simple as some analysts, politicians and bar stool philosophers would have it.
