The economy is healthy and growing, contrary to what you hear on the Republican campaign trail, reports the Wall Street Journal.

“Gross domestic product expanded at a 2.9% annual rate in the third quarter, the Commerce Department said. That was stronger growth than the second quarter’s pace of 1.4%. Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal expected growth at a 2.5% pace for the July-to-September period. Last quarter’s growth rate was the fastest recorded in two years.”

    If you want to see this countries economy take off
    A national domestic infrastructure and clean energy bill would do the trick nicely.

    • A smart renewable energy economy creates well paying jobs and increases exports. $1 of every $4 spent on Earth is spent within USA borders. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9e4f4cee5021a5c6072d6c6df456ebc5e28c4ed93c031b8c7e5e74ffcc8e8dab.jpg

        Yeah, a while back I heard a stat that was something like manufacturing has gone up 40% since 2000, or something like that. It was explained that while we don’t make so many towels any more, we now make lots of MRI machines and other big expensive stuff……

        This election may just provide a slap down heard around the world.

        I think a bunch of them will be swallowed up by the infighting I think will break out within the GOP…..

          It just takes so long to clean house, we only vote ever 2 years and that will only allow us to clean up one third of Congress at a time.
