    Higher taxes, rising prices in store for Americans in 2013 - Economy Watch on NBCNews.com

    Consumers will have to dig deeper into their pockets next year to pay for costlier healthcare, more expensive grocery bills and higher taxes, an extra drag on the country's already slow-moving economy.

    The additional outlays look set to test the resilience of consumers, whose spending accounts for around two-thirds of the U.S. economy.

    "We think it's going to be a difficult six to nine months," said Scott Hoyt, senior director of consumer economics for Moody's Analytics. "If anything, conditions are likely to get worse, particularly at the start of the year."

    Good job Emperor Obama , Your right on course -the downward trend continues....

    Since we import far more than we should the cost of most everything will rise as the dollar is further devalued and loses its Reserve Currency Status.

    Happy New Year and Good Luck!
