Rachel Maddow Exposes GOP Welfare Queens Who Attacked Obama's Stimulus, Yet Enjoyed Billions in Benefits | | AlterNet
What was the purpose of the stimulus plan and did it work?
We are told that it saved two million jobs but we have lost 4 million jobs since the stimulus and millions have dropped out of the job market. If those saved jobs had been lost the unemployment rate would have increase another half percent, hardly worth 787 billion dollars. Great spin though and fodder for the leftwing loons.
If it made hings better than it would have been, it might well have worked. Maybe not as well as hoped, but worked all the same. I know here, where I work, more jobs would have been lost without the stimulus. And they may be lost once that money's gone.
There is no way of measuring saved jobs and as I pointed out subtract another 2 million jobs from the employment number and see what affect that has on unemployment?
This is nothing more than spinning a poor situation and trying to make it look better when the reality is the so called job saved is minor compared to the money spent. The govt. could have and should have given out that entire amount in tax cuts and the benefits would have been greater for all Americans.
How do you know that? Same reason you know that Reagan took money from the poor with his tax cuts for the rich?LiberalAvenger;1058554826]The stimulus plan saved the world from a major depression. I am not happy with the big ceo bonuses, though.
You want so badly to believe what the leftwing tells you that you don't care much about your credibility.
Is this a joke? If so millions of Americans who have lost their jobs since the so called stimulus plan passed with only three Republican votes, one of which is a now turned Democrat making it hardly bipartisan aren't experiencing that utopian feeling that you apparently have.The stimulus plan was passed with bipartisan support.
