For every article posted that says the stimulus failed we can find one that says it worked, at least partially. Notice the graph shows job growth not all that long after it was passed? Our economy was BLEEDING jobs like crazy, anyone who expected the economy to be back to 90's job growth is on crack. That economy was boosted by a .com bubble followed by a housing bubble. All of you crazy fucking republicans covered the country in gas, threw a match on it then ran away laughing going HE CAN'T FIX IT FAST ENOUGH!Obama could have done a hell of a lot more to help small businesses and promote a stable business environment....but he had other priorities.
Do you want to talk about the abject failure of his $787B stimulus package (Porkulus I)?
Or do you want to talk about his attempt to double-down on his Porkulus I failure ala American Jobs Act (Porkulus II)?
Or perhaps, you want to talk about how effective "his" Jobs Act was. He called it a "game-changer"...what a laugh.
Tell me, what has he done to significantly affect real job creation?
That is not to say that it was perfect, it wasn't by any means. But to say it didn't help is laughable. Of course, neither of us have any proof until we can somehow see alternate realities.... repubs may live in one, but you can't see what would have or could have happened if different actions are taken.
