Economic Data (feed) - historical and current economic data, GDP, unemployment

Hi All

Does anyone know where I can get historical and current economic data where both Forecast and Actual fields present.
In particular, I am looking for all that important numbers: GDP, Unemployment, manufacturing, etc.
I can see all the data I need at ForexFactory as a Chart, when you click on Details of the Economic events
The problem is that they display chart but I need actual data table. (Any chance I can extract it from ForexFactory ?)

I am building my own Economic Surprise Indicator similar to Citigroup Economic Surprise indicator.
For this thing to work, I need historical both Forecast and Actual data.

I know it all very conveniently can be seen on Bloomberg. I am looking for a poor-version of bloomberg :-) I can even pay a little for the data as long as it is in Downloadable by http or any other format.

So any source you know ?

Thank you
JohnY.
