That number per job was your number and that number can only be if there were 3.5 million jobs saved/created. Now you're trying to say you don't believe that number only since I pointed out to you what you didn't realize when you first posted it ... if that number is accurate, Obama hit the key goal of his stimulus plan.


    Well you said his plan was successful. You don't think they believe you?
    Who said I accept the number but what does it matter. The fact is Obama has more unemployed and fewer employed today than when he took office. You really don't know how CBO works do you?

    Well you, not the CBO, posted that each job cost us $228,000. Are you now saying you don't accept the number you posted???

    That statement was in your link to the CBO. You posted it here, not Fox (which is where you really got that number from). You then asked me how I felt about each job costing $228,000, which I believed you meant. Why would you ask me that if you didn't believe the number you posted?

    Are you now saying you don't accept what you post??

    Let me know because if you don't accept what you post, you can imagine what others will think of what you post.

How many Americans truly need help? Put a number on it and then we can address the problem. Afraid it isn't what you have been led to believe? Stop thinking only with your heart as God actually gave you a brain to use for that.

    WE have a 14.3 trillion debt due mostly to social engineering on the part of the govt. Things like the Great Society and New Deal were created by people thinking with their hearts and all those programs have grown and grown over the years never solving a problem, any problem yet bureaucrats still keep appealing to your heart. There comes a time when one has to realize that liberalism has made a fool out of people. When will you come to that conclusion?
    How about the $5 trillion added to the debt by your guy, President Bush, was that social engineering?

    Ah, Sheik welcome to my world. Its good to see another sane face, down in the rabbet hole fighting the good fight with me.
    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 don't know. You'll have to ask whoever in his administration came up with the claim.

    Actually it was at 7.5% when the stimulus package was passed.

    Sorry to disappoint you, but I didn't get the info from Limbaugh. I got it from algov.com and assumed that the 62,000 were included in last month's numbers.
