    CP, your graph doesn't have the great depression on it. The comparison is useless since this "recession" was caused by nearly same finical meltdown that created the great depression.
    really. describe this exact same financial meltdown that caused both the current recession and the Great Depression?

    Over expansion of credit that caused a finical bubble that snared everyone in it, whether they were a part of it or not because all the banks participated in it.

    TARP + Stimulus kept credit flowing to businesses, kept people employed, and kept demand going for cetain goods (extension of unemployment benefits)

    The stealfromus package was never intended to bailout private businesses. Nor, did it create the intended effect of jump starting the economy.

    Before you defend a failed policy, you need to learn more about what it actually is.

    The stealfromus package kept credit flowing?

    TARP was designed to keep credit flowing
    The stimulus was designed to help keep demand keep up by giving money to people and employ people in temporary work through "shovel ready" jobs such as fixing infrastructure while helping close state budget holes thus keeping people employed.

    Without both, the economy would have completely collapsed.

    The Stealfromus package worked great. Huh? There are two million more unemployed people now, than there were when O'Bama took office. How awesome is that?

    I think we both know that that is bull****. There's no way that funding deer underpasses and trips to China to study dino doo-doo kept the economy from collapsing.

    It stopped job loss, we are creating jobs now. You simply don't know what you are talking about.

    I'll say it again: there are two million more unemployed people now, than there was this time last year. You can't lose two million jobs and say that job loss has been stopped and you damn sure can't say that we're creating jobs.
