The U.S. economy grew at a modest 2.4 percent annual rate from January through March, slightly slower than initially estimated.

Hey!  That's twice as good as 1.2%!!!

Healthy consumer spending shows many Americans are shrugging off an increase this year in Social Security taxes that has reduced most paychecks.

That was NOT a tax increase, the government just started collecting what it should have all along.
