Reality barks at Obama's phony jobs claim! President Obama was in front of the cameras again on Wednesday (when is he not?)trying to gin up support for the failed $trillion stimulus bill which has been in effect for a year now.
Obama's fighting a losing battle as people aren't buying the phony claim that the stimulus bill saved or created two million jobs. If that were true then unemployment which rose 2.5% as nearly 4 million Americans lost their jobs during the first year of the Obama Administration would have been cut substantially. As the Congressional Budget Office said in early 2009, the Obama Stimulus plan really is "worse than doing nothing."
From House GOP Leader John Boehner:
When Democrats rushed their massive 1,100 page, stimulus through Congress last year, they promised that unemployment would not rise above eight percent and that job creation would begin almost immediately. But one year later, more than three million more Americans have lost their jobs, the deficit is set to hit a record shattering $1.6 trillion, and Administration reports on how many jobs were saved or created have been riddled with inaccuracies and contradictions, noted USA Today.No Earmarks, Projects on the Merits in Stimulus Bill? In his stimulus celebration Wednesday, Obama also mentioned this:
By the metrics the Democrats themselves set, the stimulus hasnt worked its chock-full of wasteful government spending thats funneled money to Congressional districts that dont exist and claims of jobs saved or created were so exaggerated that the Administration quietly abandoned the metric at the end of last year.
Poll after poll confirms that an overwhelming majority of Americans oppose the stimulus program. In fact, a CBS/New York Times poll released yesterday found that just 6 percent of Americans think it has created jobs. Any wonder that a CNN survey reported that 3 of 4 Americans say much of stimulus money wasted.
