“The Obama White House on Friday said it believed the $787 billion economic stimulus plan approved early this year had saved or created about 650,000 jobs so far. “ http://www.newsmax.com/us/white_house_stimulus_jobs/2009/10/30/279577.html
Let’s see, that’s only 1.21 million a person! Please save my job Mr president! Now, about the “created” jobs part; How is that possible with unemployment climbing higher and higher? Do you mean that unemployment occurred at a smaller percentage this month in relation to what it has been in past months? About those “saved” jobs; how many were saved versus created? How long will those created jobs last? Same thing for the saved jobs? Until the unions stop contributing to the democrats only? Until the companies that are bailed out finally go belly up for the 3rd or 4th time and the tax payers get out the pitch forks?
I think I understand! The stimulus really only stimulated the control the government has over certain government jobs that really costs us money as all government jobs do! Ah, I get it! Bail out the failing companies and their unions and they will contribute even more to the democrats next time. Yep, I knew that those ACORN community organizing skills would come in handy sooner or later! A total of 2.7 million jobs were lost since the stimulus bill was signed and now you have saved 650,000 jobs! Obama must have used Geithner’s tax calculator.
