    Recovery Act success stimulates the push for job creation
    by: John Wojcik
    February 18 2010


    Reports released this week show that Republican claims that the stimulus was a failure are dead wrong and the labor movement is losing no time by demanding even more government spending on jobs to break the neck of the Great Recession.

    "The fact is that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is still working," the AFL-CIO said in a statement late yesterday, "generating more than 2 million jobs and laying the foundation for future economic growth." The federation said the positive results indicate that the government must continue spending heavily to create millions of additional jobs.

    In a report also issued yesterday, Ross Eisenberry, vice president of the Economic Policy Institute, tracked monthly job losses before and after the Recovery Act.

    "With unemployment at 9.7 percent today, it’s hard to appreciate how much more damage the stimulus investments prevented," he said, adding, "Without the more than 2 million jobs generated by the Recovery Act, the unemployment rate would now exceed 11 percent."

    Another indication that the recovery package is working, some economists say, is that the economy grew 5.7 percent last quarter – the largest gain in six years. These economists are saying the growth is largely due to the Recovery Act and that those who say President Obama’s stimulus plan didn’t work are just plain wrong.

    "The fact is that the Recovery Act did work," declared EPI President Lawrence Mishel, "precisely as it was designed to work and it has helped to produce roughly 2 million jobs that wouldn’t exist if it hadn’t become law." …

    One union leader said the Recovery Act impacted on much more than just the critical area of job creation, as essential as that is to an economic recovery. AFT President Randi Weingarten called the stimulus a "life preserver."

    "Kids don’t get a second chance to get a good education. The Recovery Act was the help they needed, ensuring that schools continued to receive resources so that teachers could teach and students could learn."

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What did Papa Obama say unemployment would only go up to?
    Do they count the jobs in phantom districts ?

    Funny, Papa Obama said the Pork Bill was going to put it around 8 percent

    Now if someone would just tell the American People the Pork Bill was a success-
    Oh wait.... that's right- according to the Left, the American People are just too stupid to understand

    -That is a lot of people-

    52% Say Obama Doesn't Deserve Second Term

    A new CNN poll contains some troubling numbers for President Obama. Among Americans -- and those registered to vote -- 52% believe Obama does not deserve a second term, while 44% think he does. A paltry 4% don't have an opinion on the matter.

    Anticipating the inevitable bullshit interjections that communism is democratic, that it is feasible with human nature, and that it is the manifestation of morality

    Red Baiting has no probative value other than evidence that the Red Baiter has no ability to offer a credible argument and must resort to hate and fear rhetoric.

    The problem isn't so much that the Stimulus is a failure, it's the fact that Obama is the primary cause of unemployment. His confusing and alarming everyone with his marxist rhetoric.

    Everything he said last year was anti-business and now all of the sudden he tries to say what everyone has been telling him since before he was elected and he dares to talk as though it was his idea. It just doesn't wash.

    Nobody trusts him or his pack of cronies. It's that simple. We're tired of the shell game.

    Now then, to be polite, "soviet history" has nothing to do with Red Baiting. For evidence, see Sen. Joe McCarthy.

    Oh I see then Soviet History shows us we had nothing to fear from them

    Let me guess, you probably still think unilateral disarmament
    is good idea

    As for McCarthy, I have noticed the Soviet apologists never want to talk about communism's atrocities
    Funny how that works
    :eusa_whistle:


    Of course if it makes you happy we can point to another "progressive leader"


    What political leader said:

    "We are socialists, we are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak..."


    Hope that makes you feel better
