What Did The Stimulus Get Us?
This week we marked the one year anniversary of the stimulus package. What did the stimulus get us? The facts are clear: not much.
We know the new federal spending did little to create new jobs. In fact, over the last year, over 3,000,000 jobs have been lost and the debt we are passing onto our children and grandchildren, has sky-rocketed.
What’s more the stimulus was just one of the boondoggles this Congress and this administration have pursued instead of policies that lead to job creation in the private sector. Remember cap and trade, government takeover of health care, tax increases, a second stimulus and the list goes on and on.
We need some fiscal sanity and transparency here in Washington and we need it now.
