Where was the affect of that stimulus program?

    I posted the unemployment numbers, now here are the employment numbers. Why is the labor force dropping?

    You really think that with a labor force of 153 million that the employment number is 131.2?

    Employment, seasonally adjusted

    2009 142221 141687 140854 140902 140438 140038 139817 139433 138768 138242 138381 137792

    Which is about the same as Bush, who also added $3 trillion in two years, only Bush can't blame it on another president who gave him a recession; Bush can only blame his own recession.
    If it was applied then that would reduce the Bush deficit since Bush spent 350 billion dollars of TARP leaving 350 billion for Obama. You are making it worse for Obama, thanks

    Again, waiting for an explanation as to where those shovel ready jobs were and why the unemployment rate wasn't capped at 8%. Don't worry, Obama will find a way to cut the labor force enough to make that 8% rate. I am still waiting for an explanation as well as to why the unemployment number today is still higher than when he took office. That would be 2011, Pb, how do you blame that on Bush?

    Spending by fiscal year (billions):

    FY2001: 1863 (Clinton)
    FY2002: 2011 (Bush)
    FY2003: 2160 (Bush)
    FY2004: 2293 (Bush)
    FY2005: 2472 (Bush)
    FY2006: 2655 (Bush)
    FY2007: 2729 (Bush)
    FY2008: 2983 (Bush)
    FY2009: 3518 (Bush)
    FY2010: 3456 (Obama)

    You'll notice (I hope) spending increased nearly every year under Bush's budget, nearly doubling after 8 years.

    The only time spending dropped was after Obama's first budget.

    Spending drops ... rightwing ideologues call that "Bush spending on steroids."

    LOL, nice distortion, Most of TARP was in fiscal year 2009. FACT, Obama Budget in 2010-2011 was 3.7 trillion. Last Bush budget without TARP was 3.0 trillion

    Now you are conflating issues. Who said raising taxes was about adding jobs? It's about balancing the budget. Although when Washington is fiscally responsible, the private sector does seem more confident in hiring.
