Sen. Lee Comments on 4th Quarter Economic Growth

January 28, 2021

WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Thursday in response to the Department of Commerce’s 4th Quarter Gross Domestic Product estimate.

“The economy demonstrated enduring strength in the final quarter of 2020, and this news should be applauded in the midst of the ongoing pandemic. GDP grew at a pace of 4.0 percent, personal income remained above pre-pandemic levels, and Americans are saving more. For the economy to fully recover, however, Americans and their families must feel completely safe resuming the activities they do together. As medical professionals in the United States continue administering life-saving vaccines and treatments, I hope that consumer confidence will continue rising and that we will soon be able to return to the in-person activities that connect us.”
