Driving the Day: Economic Growth?
Yesterday, Heritage’s conservative member retreat got under way. Heritage Action’s Tim Chapman sent in a live update. Today, spending and debt will dominate the conversation. Folks out there have also sent in some amazing pictures: see here, here, here and here.
With both the House and Senate out of session, the pundits will be focusing on economic growth numbers. Fourth quarter GDP rose by 3.2% – a bit behind analyst expectations.
What does it all mean? The economy is growing, but not as fast as many had hoped. It is a sign that we have a long way to go before we recover the 3 million jobs lost in the past two years. And one thing can be certain, liberals will continue to try and spend their way to recovery, while conservatives will try to empower Americans to win their own future.
Which do you prefer?
