'Stimulus' Stumble

Jul 07 2011

With unemployment rates rising in early 2009, the White House disguised a spending bill as a job creator to put Americans back to work. The ‘stimulus’ has been a failure since day one. President Obama promised that nationwide unemployment wouldn’t be more than eight percent, but the latest numbers show we have a 9.1 percent unemployment rate.

White House expectations of job creation from this flawed legislation fell flat and we’re experiencing more unintended consequences from this as described in the Weekly Standard.
