Real GDP decreased 2.4 percent in 2009 (that is, from the 2008 annual level to the 2009 annual level), in contrast to an increase of 0.4 percent in 2008.
The decrease in real GDP in 2009 primarily reflected negative contributions from nonresidential fixed investment, exports, private inventory investment, residential fixed investment, and personal consumption expenditures (PCE) that were partly offset by a positive contribution from federal government spending.
So now it’s time for a huge tax increase, right?
Couple the worst GDP results in decades along with unemployment hovering around 10%, then add to that 4.5 million foreclosure filings expected in 2010, and mix in personal incomes falling by an average of 1.7% in 2009, and you will begin to understand Obamanomics.
Time to end this nightmare! Vote them out.
