Study: Stimulus Benefited Democrat Districts More

by lewwaters


While ignoring high unemployment within predominantly Republican Districts.

“Democratic districts have received nearly twice as much stimulus money as Republican districts and the cash has been awarded without regard to how badly an area was suffering from job losses, according to a new study.”

“The Mercatus Center at George Mason University reviewed the distribution of $157 billion in stimulus dollars based on publicly available reports and found that there was “no statistical correlation” between the amount of money a district got and its income or unemployment rate.”

What was all that nonsense last year about Obama bringing America together again?

Has the closure of so many Auto Dealers that donated to Republican candidates over Democratic candidates been forgotten?

Should this regime succeed in highjacking our health care system, will Democrats benefit while American citizens that support the Republicans be left to suffer?

Recession wipes out 9 years of job gains

Biden Fingers Up

Interesting article from the Seattle Times.

Interesting in that after hearing nothing but “doom and gloom” over the last 8 years, they now admit there actually were “job gains” under Bush?

But, what I find most intriguing is a sentence buried in the middle of the article.

“The nation now has the same number of jobs as in 2000 — but 12.5 million more workers.”

Isn’t that right about the estimated number of ILLEGAL immigrants in the country?

I’m sure more tax increases on the middle class with cure everything, right?

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, it’s all getting better, the stimulus is working!
