No suprise here could have told you that after the election.
People are no longer willing to go into debt to pay for Christmas presents. Until incomes start to rise, expect more of the same.
Consumer uncertainty could kill the economy. Will my paycheck go down 2% on January 1 is probably the primary thing most on people's minds. Less likely are will the cliff happen (I seriously doubt it, but it's possible,) will the Republicans sneak in a middle class tax hike by say removing the deduction for mortgages. The list goes on. If Washington can't start working like adults it's back to recession we go.
pitythefools, this has nothing to do with Republicans, the drought, sandy or winter storms its all Obama. He owns this mess and its gonna get worse, strap ur boots on its gonna be 4 years of nothing.
