Here Is What Americans Spent Their “Gas Savings” On

Here Is What Americans Spent Their “Gas Savings” On (ZeroHedge, Feb 27, 2015):

Last quarter, in “This Is What Americans Spent The Most Money On In Q4” we showed that according to the first estimate of Q4 GDP data, the American consumer spent a whopping $20.4 billion in nominal dollars on healthcare, which also resulted in the biggest consumption contribution to GDP in years.

Today, following the first revision of consumer spending, we learn that in the fourth quarter Americans spent even more on healthcare, pushing the total up by $1 billion more, to a whopping $21.4 Bn, or 18% of all spending on goods and services in Q4.

This upward revision on healthcare, of which Obamacare was the primary source of mandatory spending, takes places even as the bulk of the key spending line items were revised lower following the revision.

In any event, the math is clear – the next time anyone asks you what Americans spent their so-called “gas savings” on in Q4, and why retail sales in the end of 2014 (and the start of 2015) were so weak, show them this chart.

  1. Indicating the horror of corporate control of entire countries, blacking out this story is the worst disservice to the people of the western countries I have ever seen……………………….Fascism, yes, but far worse. I have no words left to define or describe it.
