    "It's the Economy, Stupid" Act II -or- Why I don't believe a word the President says

    Back in 2009, those that support an expanding Federal government proposed and passed a massive spending program to create jobs. They even projected the recovery paths of employment with the following graph:

    Obviously, unemployment is nowhere near where they said it would be by this point. To make matters worse, unemployment is now 35% higher than the projections for this quarter without the massive spending that occurred as part of the "Recovery Plan". The most damning stat is the 10.9% unemployment rate if you dismiss the reduction in Labor Force Participation, which is due to people just plain giving up looking for work.

    Where are the jobs? Where is the return on our tax dollars being used as stimulus? Where is the outrage?

    Why does anybody believe a single word that comes from this administration?

    Well clearly the answer is not the government forcing the people to work for it and expanding government dependency. Whatever, nothing can be done.
