Confidence in the US economy is cratering according to the daily Gallup poll on economic confidence. the Index plummeted to -32 in the latest reading which is a clear sign that Americans are losing confidence in the economy. The budget impasse is clearly starting to weigh on the economy.
Imagine that – not only are we holding ourselves hostage over the budget, but it looks like we might actually be shooting ourselves in the foot. Calling this whole situation “absurd” is an enormous understatement. The entire US political “leadership” should be embarrassed at their inability to work together and meet crucial deadlines.
