Let's knock off the bullshit about anemic U.S. economic growth

Republicans continue to complain about the slow rate of U.S. economic growth.  Let's look at some facts.


First, check out Japan's recent economic growth.



Between July 2013 and July 2016, Japan's economy grew at the average rate of 0.11% per year.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, check out Germany's economic growth.


Germany's average annual economic growth for the same period is 0.4%.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, look at the U.S. economic growth rate record.


The average U.S. economic growth, July 2013 - July 2016 is 2.24% -- compared to 0.11% for Japan and 0.4% for Germany.

Now . . . what were you saying about our anemic economic growth rate??
