Jeb's 4 Percent Solution

Jeb Bush pledged Monday to give the U.S. an economic growth rate of 4 percent a year — a goal that many economists regard as ambitious at best and most likely unrealistic for any lengthy sustained period.
In declaring himself able to increase economic growth at that brisk pace, Bush is able to contrast the slow pace of recovery from the Great Recession under President Barack Obama with the rapid economic growth in Florida during his governorship. GDP growth in Florida exceeded 4 percent in all but Bush’s last year in office.
