This glitched when I posted it, wanted to make sure you saw it:<quoted text>
Trying to paint a good face on it doesn't change every graph on the Treasury Department website. A picture - and a graph - is worth a thousand words.
Wow, maybe you need to read some of the words around the pretty pictures (since clearly you can't read a graph) like these for instance:
"Some analysts have asserted that the following factors have been impediments to growth:
1. Regulations. Have increased regulations or regulatory uncertainty been a major factor in holding back growth?
2. Taxes. Is a high tax burden - or fears of future tax burdens - impeding growth?
3. Government. Is government so large that it is getting in the way of private sector-led growth?
But the facts do not support these assertions."
That's slide 6, subsequent slides offer supporting data.
Wow, floored by your own source!
