Here’s Why Our Economy Sucks: Economic Freedom Dropped Again

The Heritage Foundation just released its 2016 Index of Economic Freedom and the United States dropped AGAIN – for the 8th time in 9 years

When Barack Obama took office, the U.S. was the 6th freest economy in the world and now it’s the 11th

The reasons:

  • An increase in spending of almost $30,000 per household
  • An increase in national debt of almost $125,000 per household – to over $18 trillion
  • The government takeover of healthcare has roiled markets and driven up prices
  • Regulations and bailouts have increased uncertainty – which stifles investment and business growth
