    DID you even read the article? Closer analysis revealed that CAP took Eakin's logic to formulate THEIR conclusions thus postulating Eakin's theoretical position. NOTHING in this article states that Holtz-Eakin ADMITTED the stimulus worked...or maybe I missed it.

    Please point it out.

    I'm ignoring a growing population and rising unemployment?

    Apparently, yes, because employment is also growing in TX but you ignore that.

    Thanks for your opinion, I think like most Americans, I'll go with the majority of the economists that say the Democrats plan will help our economy and the GOP plan will have no discernible result on the economy.

    Have those economist explain the Obama results to you since apparently neither of you can

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 2.6 million fewer jobs, 4.2 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.97. 38-41% JAR and well over 50-55% disapproval ratings.

    That would be lower than the 16.5% National unemployment, right?
