The Globe posted that the Massachusetts economy grew by 4.2% in the first quarter of 2011, showing steady growth that we have grown accustomed to in 2010. Additional positive news is that the nation’s economy also grew in the first quarter of 2011. What stands out is how Massachusetts continues to outpace the nation in growth.
The Massachusetts economy grew at a 4.2 percent annual rate in the first three months of this year, more than twice as fast as the nation’s, the University of Massachusetts reported today.
It is news like this that continues to throw water on the not ready for prime time MA GOP, who have been posting their Reasons to Leave series this month and continues to post about Fidelity. While facts and truth clearly point out that Massachusetts is fairing well in comparison to the nation and other states. The Bureau of Labor and Statistics recently posted job growth by state for the first quarter, Massachusetts is in the top 10 in percentage job growth for the first quarter of 2011.
While reading the MA GOP News, what I find most troubling is they offer no ideas or solutions. Is it that they didn’t learn from the 2010 elections or that they just don’t care.
