White House surprisingly upbeat about economy

(CNN) - The U.S. recovery has hit a speed bump this year, slowing significantly in the first half of 2012.

But that didn't seem to get the White House down. The Obama administration released surprisingly upbeat economic forecasts Friday, when it revised the President's budget to include recent data.

    If we could find some way to get more tax dollars into the hands of Congress, this economy would take off....right off the cliff!

    In 2010, the lying republicans ran on "jobs, jobs, jobs." We now know that what they meant by jobs, was 33 votes to repeal ACA, and 61 votes to restrict women's rights. Not much of a record to run on, for a congress that is more unfavorable than Chavez
