From the Document: "In this week's address [October 31, 2009], President Barack Obama said that while times are still too difficult for too many American families, this week saw real evidence of progress in the economy. On Thursday, we learned that in the third quarter the GDP [Gross Domestic Product] grew for the first time in over a year, and grew faster than it has in the previous two years. And on Friday, reports from across the country made it clear that Recovery Act has now created or saved over one million jobs. The American people are still hurting, but these are signs that we are starting to move in the right direction."
