Hey, that’s a big improvement over the first stimulus! That one cost a lot more per job.
Good work, Barry!
The point of the half billion isn’t jobs. It’s to pay off unions for their support in the upcoming election. Just look how the money will be spent.
According to my calculation this jobs bill will cost nothing, because in ten years the dollar will be worthless.
in other words, we will take $3400 from every tax filer for this program, then charge them interest on top of that so that Public Employee Unions in every State will be solvent for 1 MORE YEAR.
It’s just a back door approach to ramming through more of his failed policies. Obama audacity is boundless.
“pay for” the jobs proposal with tax hikes is just lunacy.
You companies hire more people so I can tax you more so I can spend more.
Obama logic at it’s finest.
They are already calling it an "Act" when it the toner isn't even dry on the pages yet and Congress isn't even in session?
There are many industries where it is not uncommon to invest at least $250,000 to create one job. This is why taxing high income earners is counterproductive because it is this class of earners who invest - the government is diverting investing funds to current spending.
