For the first time in U.S. history a group of southern states are contributing more to the U.S. gross national product than the north.
This is HUGE news, folks. The south has been materially poorer since the United States began. But the Democrat Party’s excess and anti-American destruction has finally upset that long-time split.
The latest economic data was revealed in a story at Bloomberg in a story about how people are fleeing the cities Democrats are destroying:
The numbers tell the story. For the first time, six fast-growing states in the South — Florida, Texas, Georgia, the Carolinas and Tennessee — are contributing more to the national GDP than the Northeast, with its Washington-New York-Boston corridor, in government figures going back to the 1990s. The switch happened during the pandemic and shows no signs of reverting.
A flood of transplants helped steer about $100 billion in new income to the Southeast in 2020 and 2021 alone, while the Northeast bled out about $60 billion, based on an analysis of recently published Internal Revenue Service data.
The Southeast accounted for more than two-thirds of all job growth across the US since early 2020, almost doubling its pre-pandemic share. And it was home to 10 of the 15 fastest-growing American large cities.
“Corporations are also flocking there, with a record number of firms moving south after the pandemic, Census Bureau data show,” Bloomberg added.
Manufacturing had already started that ball rolling about 20 to 20 years ago, but the pandemic turned that trickle into a flood.
This is 100 percent the fault of failed Democrat policies, folks.
And it couldn’t happen to a more deserving sector of this country.
