Further proof the sequester didn't harm the economy

  • RSS Feed

Yesterday IPI published a TaxByte about how it's clear that the sequester didn't harm the economy, and certainly didn't live up to the inflammatory rhetoric from the Obama administration, and other outside analysts.

Well, this morning, third quarter GDP numbers were released, and during the third quarter the economy grew by 2.8%, again higher than expected.

Just further proving that it's pretty hard to argue that the sequester hurt the economy. In fact, it's beginning to look as if the sequester is about the only thing Washington's gotten right in years.
