This just in...

... the sky is blue, the grass is green, water is wet, Obama and his minions lie more than they tell the truth and the Stimulus didn't stimulate squat:

The recovery is picking up steam as employers boost payrolls, but economists think the government's stimulus package and jobs bill had little to do with the rebound, according to a survey released Monday.

In latest quarterly survey by the National Association for Business Economics, the index that measures employment showed job growth for the first time in two years -- but a majority of respondents felt the fiscal stimulus had no impact.

NABE conducted the study by polling 68 of its members who work in economic roles at private-sector firms. About 73% of those surveyed said employment at their company is neither higher nor lower as a result of the $787 billion Recovery Act, which the White House's Council of Economic Advisers says is on track to create or save 3.5 million jobs by the end of the year.

Truth is an itch-bay when you're a Democrat.

The so-called stimulus was nothing but a gigantic payoff to federal and state govt employees and union workers.

It was never intended to help the economy.
It was intended to cement votes for democrats.

bobdog:

Well, it did work. If you're a liberal, an idiot, or both. You got most of the money.

But you just have to give it time. Most of the spending was delayed so that it would coincide with the run-up to the 2010 mid term elections and the 2012 Resurrection Campaign.

You'll see. You'll be happy about it eventually. Like you were with healthcare.

Paul Hooson:

It probably depends what sort business a person is in whether they directly witnessed benefits from the various federal stimulus projects or not.

As a grocery retailer I directly witnessed increased spending from consumers who received increased food stamp or extended unemployment benefits. These benefits to my business far exceeded any federal taxes I had to pay, so to my business they were a net plus.

New home sales were up over 26% in March due to a $8,000 federal tax credit stimulus, so some home builders and real estate persons noted some real financial gains due to this.

Automobile companies and retailers both noted increased sales due to the controversial "Cash For Clunkers" legislation. And GM and Chrysler both expect to return to profitability later this year due the federal bailout and reorganization attempts.

Did some important segments of the economy see some serious benefits of federal stimulus bills? Certainly, they did. However, not every business received benefits from the federal stimulus efforts, so this help was unevenly applied.

I beleve it did what was intended and stimulated various special interest groups, unions, democrat supports, etc. It went to supporters of the demorcrat administration.

What doth it profit a man to pad his own bottom line while everybody else in the world is losing money and paying higher taxes?

Paul, even your store can only stay afloat if the rest of the economy goes down the toilet.

Paul, you sound like a parasite. The more people on the dole, and the larger their share of the dole, the more money you make.
