    New WH report claims more jobs from stimulus bill

    WASHINGTON – A new White House report says last year's $862 billion stimulus law has now "saved or created" between 2.5 million and 3.6 million jobs.

    That's up from 2.2 million to 2.8 million in the last quarterly report from the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

    Christina Romer, head of the council, says in congressional testimony prepared for Wednesday that every $1 from the stimulus bill is matched by $3 in private money.

    She says the law "appears to be stimulating private investment and job creation at a time when the economy needs it most."

    President Barack Obama has traveled the country telling voters that as bad as things are, they'd be worse without the stimulus. He acknowledges the message is a tough sell.

    *shakes head*

    How many actual jobs have been lost since Obama took office? Since he signed the stupid Porkulus Bill?
    The answer is that no jobs have been created by the stimulus bill, not any that don't involve a government paycheck anyway.
    Their return to this "saved or created" meme indicates the extreme pressure the White House is under to show results ahead of the November election. It wont work. Americans cannot be persuaded that black is white and that poverty is prosperity.

    How do you like the fact that this President can you look you straight in the face and LIE to you?

    you wonder how the hell he sleeps at night, but then one does have to have a conscious for that to matter.

    This White House's numbers are all Bull Chit. They claim Unemployment is going down when all you see is more & more people being laid off. They just laid off 500 more teachers in my area alone. With the Census ending,there will be at least a Million more Americans out of work. Yet they keep telling us Unemployment is going down. I just don't believe anything coming from this White House anymore. It's all just a Hopey Changey scam in the end.

    Come on now give the gov tool a break. The same guy that came up with the 8% max unemployment last year from the stimulus is working up the saved jobs number.

    Which number is less horrible?
