Economists want to know: where U.S. consumer optimism? Job growth is going well, corporate profits are going up, what's the problem?
How disconnected are these goons, anyway? Would it be the rising cost of the same old debt because of the rising interest rates? Like credit cards and interest-only mortgages? Guess how many people that affects? Rising gas prices is only one part of it. So is the forboding knowlege that all this deficit spending is going to have to be paid by US, the U.S. taxpayer.
