News that 651,000 jobs were lost in February brings to "an astounding 4.4 million" the number of jobs lost since the recession began, Obama said. The unemployment rate spiked to 8.1 percent.
But he saved 25 jobs Today! Thanks to the Stimulus Bill of course...
"Well, that is not a future I accept for the United States of America," Obama said, explaining why he signed the stimulus bill on Feb. 17.
That's the future he is creating. he is responsible for the loss of 651,000 jobs in February. His stupid Stimulus Bill does nothing to create jobs.
But last week Coleman announced that the Justice Department had told the city it would get $1.25 million in stimulus funds to cover the officers' salaries through Dec. 31.
Then what? Obama "created or saved" 25 jobs that may disappear in a year? I know, I know, the jobs he is talking about are government jobs in the first place anyway. Listen to this:
He suggested that critics talk to 25 police recruits in Ohio's capital city who owe their jobs to stimulus spending and "talk to the teachers who are still able to teach our children because we passed this plan."
During a graduation ceremony for the police recruits, he also noted "the nurses who are still able to care for our sick and the firefighters and first responders who are still able to keep our communities safe."
Stupid is what stupid says.
The recruits were rehired using money from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant program. The stimulus bill included $2 billion for that program, and the money is being delivered to local departments by a predetermined formula.
Great! At least we will have some sort of police protection for a year while the crime rate will be going up thanks to the miserable status of the economy. Who cares after that anyways. Obama is creating the largest government in the history of this nation. One of the latest polls about his budget showed that the federal employees are overwhelmingly support his monstrous budget. Why the hell not? They know their jobs will be secure. Start applying for a government job folks. That's where the future is. At least for a little while before all the taxpayers give up.
Look at on of the stimulating programs available on this stimulus bill of Obama: $225 million to the Office on Violence Against Women.
It is critical that applicants address our nation’s economic recovery in their proposals specifying how these funds will be used to create and preserve jobs, leading the way for economic prosperity, while addressing sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.
Yep! Obama is leading the way for economic prosperity allright.
