Obama rolled out his stimulus just after taking office. And as these charts clearly show, it worked.
We still have a long way to go to fix the problems that have developed in the economy over the past 30 years--namely, massive debt overhangs, extreme inequality, high unemployment, lousy schools, idiotic immigration policies, and so forth. But we're certainly better off than we were four years ago.
The stimulus worked. And if the Jobs Act had passed unemployment would be under 7%.
I want to be able to vote out Congress!
