Economic growth slowed sharply between July and September as the emergence of the delta variant derailed the recovery from the coronavirus recession, according to data released Thursday by the Commerce Department.
U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) grew at an annualized rate of 2 percent in the third quarter, according to the Census Bureau’s first estimate. The economy grew at a 6.7 percent yearly pace in the second quarter of 2021, marking a sharp slowdown as the delta surge began.
“The increase in third quarter GDP reflected the continued economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. A resurgence of COVID-19 cases resulted in new restrictions and delays in the reopening of establishments in some parts of the country,” the Census Bureau explained.

No, it is the Brandon Variant.
Delta?? LOL They must really think we’re stupid.
Part of the blame deflection impulse...
They are deliberately knee-capping the supply chain so they can starve us to death.
It’s not Delta. It’s YOUR expectations.
Now shut up and get in the bread line, prole.
THAT IS GREAT! But maybe we should just be honest and call it the Biden Variant?
The Biden Recession......................
No, they really don’t.
Which is why they stole the election.
They know very well we’re not that stupid.
Nope. Delta's not the problem. Joe's the problem, as are the people who are hiding behind his skirts.
Somebody supported these stupid Democrat sons of bitches.
Probably the same cowardly idiots who come here and write that the Republicans are in charge.
Oh, a lot of them think we “peasants” are idiots. Their arrogance knows no bounds and it clouds any sense of rationale, especially among those in the media arm of the government.
But there are enough of them who know that they need to keep a watchful eye out.
What they are pretending, is that if the delta variant caused it, then it is fault of the unvaxxed, lol.
What is the reason for the United States' current problems?
C. January 6th insurrection
D. Concerned parents
D. All of the above
Economically things are going fine. Go make money, there is opportunity everywhere.
Works for me!
But inflation is not 5%, but possibly 15%. This is depression, not recession.
Can't go wrong assuming that at least 50% of the population is retarded.
No, the Delta Variant, which they don’t have a test for BTW, did nothing.
Communists, Democrats (but I repeat myself), Liberals (I repeat myself again) and RINOs are the ones destroying our economy by LYING about COVID-19 and using it as an excuse to throttle and stifle our economy by any means necessary.
