    Well it looks at just the energy sector in Florida so it's examining just a small section where it supposedly succeeded. Even that claim is iffy.

    From the article :

    While Putnam’s report claims that stimulus funds created some jobs in the so-called green energy sector, it is silent on the jobs destroyed elsewhere in the economy by taking dollars out of these sectors and directing them to green energy programs. It is also silent on the jobs that may be destroyed in future years as government will need to increase taxes to pay down the debt used to finance the 2009 stimulus bill.

    No one could seriously deny that the stimulus indeed failed. It's only success was in the kickbacks to the DNC.

    A report commissioned by a prominent Florida





    Republican isn’t taking the usual GOP line on the Obama administration’s stimulus package.

    A newly-released audit from the office of Republican Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, a Mitt Romney supporter and former member of the U.S. House Republican leadership, says that the 2009 stimulus bill did benefit the state of Florida.

    “Based on reports received by the [Office of Energy], the State of Florida has benefited from the investment of [American Recovery and Reinvestment Act] funds,” the report says, pointing to jobs created and retained as well as energy cost savings through the distribution of stimulus funds.

    From what the Florida "audit" entailed, is that home owners who made the decision to purchase more efficient appliances were able to save on their energy costs. They also discussed the rebates the Federal Government offered for solar.

    However how many homeowners in Florida have a solar panel in their back yard?

    Where is this big economic BOOM in Florida and the massive surge of jobs? I have yet to find anyone speak about a flood of new construction going on in that state.

    When it matters most: long term secure employment (and not temporary "teases" of a few jobs) the Stimulus has failed to turn the economy around. The steady creeping of unemployment numbers and the significantly higher underemployment rate already proves that.

    It doesn't and we already have shown you why. Facts are facts.
