The Unstimulating Stimulus--3 Years Later

February 27, 2012 J

In case you missed it, the Columbus Dispatch ran a great editorial this morning that highlighted the massive debt that has been run up since the inception of President Obama’s stimulus plan. Three years later, the stimulus plan has proven to be yet another example of President Obama’s policies being out of touch with American families.

The editorial goes on to say:
“Today, saddled with an ever-ballooning debt and a national unemployment rate that has remained above 8 percent — and is much worse if one takes into account the number of people who simply have given up trying to find a job or are underemployed — the absurdity of the argument for the stimulus is apparent to the majority of Americans who continue to be faced with tough choices in their own household budgets.”
