Another Talking Point Down

The porkulus bill did NOTHING except burden our descendents.

The counter argument comes from the CBO, which was the non-partisan voice of truth a couple of months ago but by the end of the day will be considered Pravda.

WASHINGTON, Feb 23 (Reuters) - The massive stimulus package passed last year to blunt the impact of the worst U.S. recession in 70 years created up to 2.1 million jobs in the last three months of 2009, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office said on Tuesday.

The package boosted the economy by up to 3.5 percent and lowered the unemployment rate by up to 2.1 percent during that period, CBO said.
Of course, that's Reuters talking, and they're an arm of the Obamitler Black House. If this was actually accurate news, Fox would report on it; I'm guessing it's going to get very little play on that network.

Great news! I knew things were awesome out there! This Stimulus Bill has really made a difference in my life! Now I can sell my foreclosed house, drive my repossesed car, and go to my non-existent job tomorrow!

Hope and Change!

Yeah, I'm unemployed in Michigan too. This year I'm voting for the guys who were dead set on making it an even 20%, and making sure that the guy who laid me off pays absolutely no taxes!

Government jobs are NOT jobs. Government jobs are pork and waste. Government jobs do not help the economy they burden the economy. Government jobs are what the so-called stimulus created.

Most people think that World War 2 was the thing that got us out of the first depression.
