    WELL NOW, look what I found, from the CBO at that.


    < CBO report: Stimulus package saved or created as many as 1.6 million jobs>


    <By Michael O'Brien - 12/01/09 10:09 AM ET
    The stimulus bill enacted this year has resulted in as many as 1.6 million jobs saved or created this fall, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said Monday evening.>


    <The nonpartisan CBO said in a legally mandated report that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) had resulted in between 600,000 and 1.6 million jobs for the U.S. economy that wouldn't have existed in the absence of the stimulus.>


    <Additionally, the CBO said, gross domestic product (GDP) was as much as 3.2 percent higher than it would have been in the absence of the stimulus.>


    < Republicans had attacked the White House jobs figures as "trying to cover up economic reality by manufacturing job numbers out of thin air" when the Obama administration released those data. Republicans in Congress meanwhile point to testimony earlier this year from a Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) official maintaining it's virtually impossible to glean such an estimate of the true impact of the stimulus.>


    CBO report: Stimulus package saved or created as many as 1.6 million jobs - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I would like to see proof of those jobs numbers since there has been so much fraud in this issue in the last few months.

    How exactly do you know for sure if a job was "saved"?

    There were indeed many jobs saved, but they were all in government, and this was the biggest lie ever sold to the american people!

    Isn't this the same CBO that had their democrat appointed head called on the carpet in the oval office after putting out a report that showed that the health care, or stimulus bill I am not sure which, would cost more that Obama wanted to show?


    From Rolling Stone back in July....Certainly no right wing source


    CBO Chief Called Into the Principalís (Oval) Office

    Jesus. This is wildly inappropriate.

    After a week in which Doug Elmendorf, the head of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, said that Congressional health care overhauls would balloon federal health care obligations by $240 billion over the next decade, the President Obama called him into the Oval Office for a little chat.

    But Elmendorf didnít just get leaned on by the president. He was outnumbered by something like 10-1:

    From ABC:

    In addition to the president and Elmendorf, present in the meeting were White House officials such as Assistant to the President for Legislative Affairs Phil Schiliro, Director of the White House Office of Health Reform Nancy-Ann DeParle, Office of Management and Budget director Peter Orszag (a former CBO director himself), National Economic Council Director Larry Summers, chair of the Council of Economic Advisers Christy Romer, senior adviser David Axelrod, and press secretary Robert Gibbs.

    Others were there as well, including Department of Health and Human Services adviser Meena Seshamani, Harvard University economist David Cutler and Alice Rivlin of the Brookings Institute, who was founding director of CBO from 1975-1983.

    Thereís nothing subtle going on there. Iím intimidated just reading about it.

    CBO Chief Called Into the Principal’s (Oval) Office : Rolling Stone : National Affairs Daily

    Yeah, Elmendorf gets the Chicago way taught to him up close and personal, and all of the sudden numbers start falling like Dear Leader wants....yeah very trustworthy.....
