Well the -- of the date of the day is the new normal economists are predicting a 2.4 percent growth in the US economy and that's -- the entire year.
And voters well they are looking on the bright side in new Fox News poll shows that more than half to think that the worst is yet to come when it comes to the economy.

And then that policy -- that decision doesn't work you know we keep getting fed by these economists well we just clearly didn't do enough -- it.
We should be learning from what's going on in Japan.
As you increase government debt as you increase your debt to GDP ratio and as you increase taxes it slows your economy down.
