"We Will Turn This Economy Around!"

Nanci Pelosi has claimed that if Democrats win the majorities, they will turn this economy around. Let's see what they plan on turning around:

* Real Wages Grew 2.4 Percent Over The Past 12 Months. This means an extra $755 for the average full-time production worker or about $1,327 for the typical family of four with two wage earners.
* Real After-Tax Income Per Person Has Risen By 9.8 Percent – $2,660 – Since President Bush Took Office.
* Our Economy Has Grown A Solid 2.9 Percent Over The Past Four Quarters – Faster Than Any Other Major Industrialized Country.
* Productivity Has Grown At An Annual Rate Of 3 Percent Since The First Quarter Of 2001, Up From A 2.4 Percent Annual Rate During The Preceding Five Years.
* Gas Prices Have Fallen Almost 82 Cents A Gallon Since Early August.
* Employment Has Increased In All But One State Over The Past 12 Months Ending In September.
