WASHINGTON — A measure of the U.S. economy's health rose in March for the third consecutive month, a sign of stronger growth after harsh winter weather caused the economy's pace to slow.

The Conference Board said Monday that its index of leading indicators increased 0.8 percent in March after a 0.5 percent rise in February and modest 0.2 percent gain in January. It was the best showing since a 0.9 percent gain in November.

This is what people are interested in, things that affect their lives directly like the economy and health care. Not a cattle rancher that wants to leach of of taxpayers.

All good news. Thank Gawd for sequestration and the resilience of American small business. One can only imagine the growth that would have taken place had a business minded person like Mitt Romney been POTUS instead of the socialist minded BH Obama.

No matter, those are weak numbers. .2, .5, .8.

Al Sharption owes 3.5 million in back taxes. Now that's a leach of taxpayers.
