Bush's May 03 tax cuts worked quicker, cost less and reduced unemployment more than Papa's Obama Pork Spending has in 6 months; 7 months, 8 months; 9 months; 10 months; 11 months - funny how that works BLS: Labor Force Statistics from the Current Population Survey *1.4 million jobs were added in the nine months after August 2003 (the 2003 tax cuts were signed into law in late May 2003). *The unemployment rate remained steady at 5.6 percent in May 2004, well below its peak of 6.3 percent a year ago. *The Treasury Department estimates that without the tax relief, as many as 1.5 million more Americans would be out of work right now, and the unemployment rate would be well over 7 percent. Obama said with the Stimulus Bill the unemployment rate would not go over 8%. The unemployment rate is currently at 10%. But, Papa Obama says it's working.
