How has the recovery plan worked?

Today Unemployment hit a new high, 10.2% and the work week is still at 33 hours a week, instead of a 40 hour one. How has the Obama adminstration helped us recover?

  • They haven't. Both this administration and Bush's handled this improperly. If we had just let things be, the cycle would've come around. Instead we are imitating Hoover, who turned a recession into the Depression. Scary.

  • If you ask 'some' Obama supporters, he has saved/created copious amounts of jobs. If you ask the city officials where 'some' of these jobs went to, they don't know what the hell Obama is talking about with his 'number' of jobs saved/created.
    Recovery? Stabilazation? Whatever the hell Biden wants to call it, he is full of sh*t. He and Obama don't need mops. They need shovels, cause their jobs saved/created numbers are full of sh*t!

  • OB supporters will not touch this post. They don't have any answers. Obama, Bush and Congress screwed up. My hubby calls Obama

  • If this is a recovery, I want a second opinion.

  • The administration lied about the amount of jobs created, and had to admit to that lie when caught. They OWN this. For ever job they may have created (mostly short-term, part-time jobs) there have been more lost. The BS about recovery is just that, BS. You cannot call this a recovery with unemployment climbing.

  • I'd really like to know if they subtracted all the jobs lost from those that they supposedly gained? After all they do cancel each other out. LOL
    Of course it hasn't worked. I think the number of new jobs is more like 6 thousand rather than 600,000.
