Modest gain???? More like pitiful.. Honestly.
I guess I’ve gotten so used to the msm carrying this administration’s water I totally missed that. Ridiculous.
This statement contains two lies. You're right, "modest" is editorializing. The number is so insignificant it is likely noise.
The second lie is even more insidious and goes to the heart of central planning- "economist's expectations". What is an economist? What is their track record for predictions? Who makes up this group of brilliant "economists" predicting and guiding our nation's financial path?
They're voodoo doctors who know a little more than the average American. If they're so great at predicting why aren't they retired on a beach somewhere?
