Why are people still saying that US economy is not doing good when unemployment is only 4.9 and GDP

Because the definition of a JOB has changed significantly. The economy broke in half when the FED decided to float the Financial-System, and regain that cash by raising our taxes, and cutting our public-services, it literally turned 'the economy' into a Financial-Market(which is planned, and protected, very Communist), and a Living-Economy(supposedly a free-market, but because the financial-sector is playing keep-away with the money, it's not even a little free, it's classic Plebism, common-people at the mercy of the establishment), and 1 has NOTHING to do with the other. http://www.fueleconomy.gov/ - http://www.fueleconomy.gov/ -
