I know the bill provides for much nonvital spending, but in reading the reports, graphs and charts on expected relief for the American public in regards to job creation through state and city building as well as new energy technology, I have to say I'm pleased. The job creation will not outmatch the job loss but will however curb it considerably over the course of the next two-three years. For the estimated 7 million jobs lost over this course of time (including those that have already been lost) they are expecting to generate 3.5 million jobs, not to mention stem to some extent the tide of lay offs and cut backs. While of course this wouldn't be quantified as wild success, the difference between 7 million being out of work in our country and only half of that is significant. Not to mention the obvious benefits to encouraging and contributing to alternative, cheaper, cleaner resources for energy. Thoughts?

You might want to read the fine print at the bottom of this article *Creating or Saving 206,000 jobs over the next two years. Jobs created will be in a range of industries from clean energy to health care, with over 90% in the private sector.
Liberal Media likes to leave out the "saving" part out... So how do you know if your job has been saved?
