Economists: Stimulus Did Nothing. More reason to believe Obama's spending isn't helping our nation?

Our nation, compliments of Barack Obama~ spent $804.7 billion to do absolutely nothing, how does that make you feel?

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.

  • 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. ...

  • So, more economists who believe our economy would have worked itself through this had we NOT implemented the stimulus. Soooooo, will the 4 people in the White House pulling Obama's strings make an 'unexpected' response to this?

  • Pisses me off big time of course. They can take credit for every job and business opening they want to but the small number of those that came directly from Obamas cherry picking is negligible. It was a waste, they haven't even used it all and it was such an emergency. Whats worse than doing it in the first place? Thinking America fell for their lies.
