    By the way, as virtually all of the public and private sector analyses of ARRA concluded, there were more than three million jobs in the economy at the end of 2010 that would not have been there had it not been for the stimulus bill. At their peak, the 90,000 infrastructure projects alone were providing jobs and paychecks to more than 750,000 Americans.


    Who do you think food stamp and COBRA benefits went to? Unemployment benefits are meanwhile set by the states. All Obama did was create and fund the federal tiers of emergency extended unemployment benefits.

    Which standards for any federal disability program do you think were changed? Are you sure that the jobs disabled people had been doing weren't preferentially among those eliminated?

    And of course 37% of ARRA -- more than $290 billion -- went to tax cuts, including about $240 billion that went directly to individuals.


    Yes, there is an explanation needed since some $26 billion went into science and health over two years. Maybe track down a few of those projects and report back on how they are doing.


    More than 90,000 infratsructure projects were completed providing more than 750,000 jobs at the peak. There were projects near you no matter where you live. Well, maybe not on the moon.


    States received $140 billion in budget support. This was fast-acting pain relief and preserved the jobs of thousands while allowing key state services to continue. Had Republicans been a smarter bunch, they would have renewed a good part of this aid in 2011. Instead, their takeover of the House turned into its own little mini-recession.
    I wish I could like posts more than once.

    Does anybody else wish that politicians would spend more time vacationing and less time mucking up society?

    Personally, I'm more concerned with how the minds of so many who post have have gotten so mucked up. Why would anyone simply settle for being a trained seal for the right-wing disinformation media? That's not helpful.

    re: the bolded - I don't care who you are, that there is funny. You must be a legend in your own mind...LOL!!!
    Yet another post all about ME instead of the subject, I rest my case.

    Good idea. Your case was beyond worn out and tired to begin with.

    LOL, nice try. I rest my case that BWG wants to talk about me instead of the subject of the OP, that is a discussion I am enjoying.

    If you truly want to face reality, you will admit that Obama was talking about the economy 3-4 years ago when he said it was the worst economy since the Great Depression. So no, he did not take off for a Hawaiian vacation amid the "worst economy since the Great Depression."

    What did Reagan do to turn the economy around?

    Who knows why [partisan?] you criticize Obama for taking to the "wide open space" of a golf course to "recharge his batteries" when you commend other [Republican] presidents for doing the same?
