Hmmm. Doesn't look THAT dire. I count 5 times that the % was the same under the other guy...but can't recall the talk of calamity.
Welp. Guess trickle down is a failure
You werent paying very close attention. The growth rate dropped to under 1% during the dot com bubble/911 in2000- 2002 and again during the housing recession of 2007. Notice the spikes when the recovery began in 2002. There were spikes over 5% as well as 3 years of growth over 3%. In June pf 2012 we were back to 1.5%. If you believe that between now and November 2nd the numbers are magically going to improve, well good luck with that dream.
