The Stimulus Bill Wasn't About Jobs

The Stimulus Bill was sold to us as a jobs bill. But with only 1/3 of the money spent how could it be about jobs? The Stimulus bill is just a slush fund for the Democratic Party. They are using this bill as a their own little piggy bank. As if we need any more proof that this bill was not designed to  do what they said it would. Then why do they feel we need another jobs bill when the first bill isn't even half way spent yet? Is that the 'change' the American people voted for? Can you seriously say that the bill has done what it was supposed to do? Or what it was sold to us as? Joe 'the buffoon' Biden is coming to the Detroit area today to talk about the jobs this admin. has saved or created. The last time they told us about the jobs they have 'saved or created' almost half of the jobs were not real. But the left will buy the Democrats 'saved or created' theory of jobs creation and economic growth hook, line and sinker. Just like they bought 'global warming' and 'alien seeding earth' theories. I'm starting to believe Darwins theory of evelution. They more I listen to these progressives. The more I think they are the relatives of monkies.


  1. God, Chris, they put in tax cuts to try and get Republican votes. How many Republicans voted for the bill NONE! Nada. Zero.

    It should have had more of that money go for infrastructure, but stupidly the Democrats believed the Republicans would vote for it if it had more tax cuts.

    The fact is that the job losses have slowed dramatically and the unemployment rate ticked down slightly and most local government officials will tell you it has made a huge difference.

    You can try to peddle your story that it hasn't but the facts are NOT on your side.



    Get It Done Now-Get It Done Right

    We voted for change in 2008. For more than a year we’ve mobilized to reform health care, win worker’s rights, reform immigration, create good jobs, rein in Wall Street and reform energy. We’re fed up. We want the change we voted for and we want it now!

    When: Feb.18 at 5:30 pm

    Where: United Food and Commercial Workers Local 876

    876 Horace Brown Dr, Madison Heights, MI 48071

    (just east of I-75, just south of 13 Mile Rd)

    There will be Republicans at this event taking notes and filming the event. You will not know who it is. This is from a mass email that was sent out to over 10,000 people. It is also on some Mighigan Progressive blogs as well. Do unto others as they have done unto you. Right Bruce?

  3. What facts do you have again Bruce? None? Do you remember 8%? Is 10% higher or lower then 8%? Saved or Created is a made up stat.never used before these progressive Democrats took over. You are the ones that are making shit up not Chris.

  4. What a Day New York Times That Great CONSERVATIVE Paper Shows Only 6% of People BELIEVE Jobs Were Created With Stimulus Bill! Wonder What the Other 94% Thought?

    Nobama to OK Building of TWO Nuclear Power Plants! What a Day!

    Once Again Bruce Tell the UNEMPLOYED That have STOP Looking For Work How Much Better Things Are NOW, Wonder Their Thought on YOUR Logic!

    Our Government Would NEVER Play Games With Numbers Would They Bruce. That also Includes more Than Just This Administration Bruce But some of their Figures or Congrssional Districts JUST Dont Add UP!

    See The Nobama Propaganda Machine in the White House Will Be More Actively Setting News On the Correct Coarse. It Appears the "FREE PRESS" from YEARS Ago is Now Bought and Payed For!

    Fox News FAIR and Balanced!

  5. So will reporters be aloud at that meeting Bruce? That sounds like a lot of fun. I wish I could make it. I'm sure that someone from here will go. Let us know how your socialist meeting turns out. If over 10,000 people got that email and now on this and other blogs you can bet the house will be full if you are on the right side of the issues. Make sure you have enough seating for everyone. It would be nice if Jay Ney is there with her NBPP friends. Someone should take pictures of all the radicals just in case there is a domestic terrorist attack.LOL

  6. AL thank you for pointing out that the far left extrimist are the fringe at only 6%. But they keep selling their stupid new statistics of 'created or saved jobs'. You have to ask yourself what is wrong with that 6%? Why don't they get it? I know they think they are the only ones that get it. But comeon this isn't rocket science. It's common sense and 94% of Americans get it. Why doesn't Obama and the fringe far left? Are they dumb or just have an alternet agenda?

  7. The Stimulus bill the Democratic Party passed is a huge success. It's just 94% of you people are too dumb to understand it. That's all.

  8. How Will Republican Recovery Act Hypocrites Mark Tomorrow’s Anniversary?

    Posted by Brad Woodhouse on February 16, 2010 at 02:18 PM

    As we look forward to the first anniversary of the signing of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) – which economist largely credit with stabilizing an economy that was at this point last year hemorrhaging hundreds of thousands of jobs – we wonder: how will Republican Recovery Act Hypocrites mark the occasion?

    The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Times have both pointed out in the last week that the very same Republicans who indignantly raised their fist in opposition to the Recovery Act have, with the other hand, brazenly accepted funding for projects in their home states and districts. Many have even gone so far as to attend ribbon cutting ceremonies for the same Recovery Act projects that they routinely dismissed as wasteful. We've identified 93 of them - and counting. These people have in one breath decried the Recovery Act as ineffective and in the next breath championed the funding as essential to job creation. Incredible.




    CBO: 800,000 – 2.4 Million Jobs Saved or Created From Stimulus Through Fourth Quarter. “The Congressional Budget Office attributes between 800,000 to 2.4 million jobs and 1.2 to 3.1 percentage points of economic growth to stimulus.” [CNNMoney.com, 1/13/10]

    CEA: The Stimulus Package Saved Or Created Up To 2 Million Jobs. “The $787 billion economic stimulus package has created or saved between 1.7 million and 2 million jobs, but its impact on the economy ebbed slightly in the final quarter of 2009 compared with prior months, the White House said Tuesday night. Releasing the administration's second quarterly report to Congress on the stimulus's impact, Christina Romer, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, said a third of the tax cuts and spending in the package is out the door. Her office estimates that the stimulus added between 1.5 and 3 percentage points to the growth in gross domestic product in the final quarter of 2009. That estimate, which is in line with other analyses, is lower than her office's estimate of stimulus-related impact in the third quarter, between 3 and 4 percentage points.” [Council of Economic Advisors, 1/13/10; Washington Post, 1/13/10]

  9. President By Executive Order will Appoint "Defict Panel" to Bring DEFICT Under Control!

    Deficit Control Is NOT that Why WE Elected These Politicans, The ELITE 535 In Washington DC? Panel is going to Be BI PARTISAN and Will Advice Administration BUT President Will NOT Have to Take Recommendations!
    Heres a THOUGHT on Defict Control, DONT SPEND TAXPAYERS MONEY YOU DONT HAVE! NO Panel,NO Inept Congress! Executive Order to DO Congresses JOB! Another IDEA Mr President TELL Congress to DO Their JOB and By the SAME Standard YOU DO Yours,QUIT Spending MONEY,Such a SIMPLE Solution!

  10. Wow, Al, that's brilliant. It's all so simple, isn't it. I don't know why no one thought of it before. (sarcasm intended)

    Just shut down the whole damn government. Problem solved. Idiot.

  11. Bruce Did Not Say SHUT DOWN GOVERNMENT!
    Said Congress THAT Is Elected to LEGISLATE SHOULD and If They CanT Get Rid of Them in NOVEMBER and Stupid That WILL Happen,What a DUMBO!

    Some of The Best Government OCCURRS When Climate Change SNOW Shuts Down Government SO in Your OWN INEPT Way You Might Have a POINT!

  12. Obummer is just like Jenny Granholm. She says we have to control spending and then releases a budget that is $2B more in spending that last year's budget! These Hypocrats are talking out of both sides of their asses.

    Obama Defeats FDR (in Spending Other People’s Money) By Terence P. Jeffrey, February 17, 2010


    After he signed a law last week authorizing the U.S. Treasury to borrow an additional $1.9 trillion, President Barack Obama delivered a characteristically sanctimonious speech. It was about his deep commitment to frugality.

    “After a decade of profligacy, the American people are tired of politicians who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk when it comes to fiscal responsibility,” he said. “It’s easy to get up in front of the cameras and rant against exploding deficits. What’s hard is actually getting deficits under control. But that’s what we must do. Like families across the country, we have to take responsibility for every dollar we spend.”

    To put Obama’s Olympian hypocrisy in perspective, one need only examine the federal budget tables posted on the White House website by Obama’s own Office of Management and Budget.

    They reveal these startling facts: When calculated by the average annual percentage of the Gross Domestic Product that he will spend during his presidency, Obama is on track to become the biggest-spending president since 1930, the earliest year reported on the OMB’s historical chart of spending as a percentage of GDP. When calculated by the average annual percentage of GDP he will borrow during his presidency, Obama is on track to become the greatest debter president since Franklin Roosevelt. ...

  13. What's the worst that would happen if the government did shut down?

    For the first 150 years of this country's existence, I would have to say it would not have much of an effect. Remember hearing stories about how legislators considered their senate seats a part-time job?

    Now the federal government has so intruded into every facet of our lives that most, like FAILk, can not conceive of them shutting down!

    I myself prefer a government that cost us each about $25/year in today's money, versus one that costs us each $15,000/year. I guess we know which way FAILk prefers it.

  14. Our Vice President Joe Said Today that The First Part of the STIMULUS Was Not to Get JOBS Moving BUT the Second Half of the STIMULUS will Address JOBS! Question Where Did the First Part of STIMULUS Go? Thought Purpose of STIMULUS Was to CREATE JOBS! Everyday Something NEW. NOBAMA Spends MORE Than ALL Presidents Before Him and then Calls For FISCAL REFORM! Has Not He Proposed a NEW STIMULUS to CREATE JOBS! Must Be BEFORE He BECOMES Fiscal Responsible! Man Says One Thing and Does Another! Administration is Either Tanking Economy on Purpose or Really INCOMPETENT! Either Way Citizens LOSE.


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
