Let us not forget that a whole bunch of the jobs they counted as created were temporary, like for the census. And a whole bunch more of the allegedly saved were actually government union jobs that were never at risk. States just took the stimulus money and used it to pay government salaries, so state politicians in office could shove off on to future politicians the messy business of dealing with the shortfalls in their budgets.
When the stimulus bill passed, Democrats controlled the House, the Senate and the Oval Office. Their plan has not merely failed; it has put our grandchildren into debt for billions that went almost entirely to paying off the people who helped get those Democrats elected. If our so-called leaders were working stiffs, they would be indicted, convicted and sent to prison for what they did. Instead, they are going to retire with cushy life-time pensions they voted to give themselves that include much better health plans than any of us will ever have.
If you are not angry, it is only because you have not been paying attention.
