Here you go

Yes, Bush gets some credit for starting TARP. Obama continued it and expanded it to cover the auto industry.

Also, the Dems had for the most part control of the House and Senate for 2 years. That is when the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 was passed. He also supported the FED's actions and retained Ben Bernanke. The Obama administration re-regulated the financial industry (Dodd - Frank) to force them to keep higher reserves, pass stress tests, and to keep them out of the credit derivatives market. The plan also requires large financial institutions to have a plan to divest themselves to keep them from collapsing in the event of a crisis.

He proposed an infrastructure plan back in 2011, but the Republicans killed it. That would have created a lot of jobs. Hence, the reason why the Republicans killed it. They did not want Obama to get credit. That is one thing that Trump wants to do that I support. We need an infrastructure bill.
