New Report out showing that Chuck Schumer is Lying about the Economy!
This dueling-narratives game that Democrats are playing with Republicans has gotten too far out of hand to the point where Democrats have to make up lies and evidence to make their side look like the morally right side of history while our side remains the semantically correct.
Thumbs up to you if you laughed at that bit about not being semantically correct but morally right. Yikes. At least we can say that ahead of the State of the Union, Chuck Schumer once again fails to convince anyone that Republicans don’t exist, we’re in a 3D simulation, or in a dream that no liberal can wake up from…or whatever crazy extremes they’re trying to live with.
Schumer was busted.
NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. retail sales are expected to rise between 3.8 percent and 4.4 percent to more than $3.8 trillion in 2019, the National Retail Federation (NRF) said on Tuesday, citing high consumer confidence, low unemployment and rising wages.
Preliminary estimates show retail sales grew 4.6 percent in 2018 to $3.68 trillion, exceeding the retail industry group’s forecast for growth of at least 4.5 percent, the NRF said.
The 2018 results are based on Commerce Department data up through November but include NRF estimates for December, as the agency was closed during the recent government shutdown and has not yet released December figures, the NRF said.
“More people are working, they’re making more money, their taxes are lower and their confidence remains high,” NRF President and Chief Executive Matthew Shay said in a statement.
In 2018, a healthy economy and rising wages gave consumers the confidence to shop and splash out on retailers’ annual bargains during the holiday season.
