Remember in February when President Barack Obama -equipment maker Caterpillar has informed him it will rehire some of the thousands of workers it has laid off in recent weeks if Congress passes an economic stimulus bill.
"So once Congress passes this plan, and I sign it into law, a new wave of innovation, activity and construction will be unleashed all across America. We'll put people to work.."
"Think about all the work out there to be done, and Caterpillar will be selling the equipment that does the work."
~Barack Obama Feb 2009
We were in such a hurry to pass the Stimulus, but why?

So are the 550 jobs saved? Created? And where do the 2500 jobs laid off fit into Obama's equation?

What gets me is that according to Obama's economic advisor~ Most analysts,” said Romer, in testimony before the congressional Joint Economic Committee, “predict that the fiscal stimulus will have its greatest impact on growth in the second and third quarters of 2009.” So how many more of those 18,000 jobs will see the long term economic growth in the remainder of 2009 and 2010? That IS what Obama predicted would come with the stimulus, right?

He's from Illinois.
He's not from Illinois. He moved there to go to school and work as a community organizer. He knows nothing about construction, farming, heavy equipment or the like. He used the backdrop at the plant because he liked the one he saw on the movie Dave. It is all smoke and mirrors. Just like the visit to Indiana and the RV industry.
