In Response to RE: Tried and True Proven Mantra by alfalfa109
I don't see very many people from the left posting here at all actually, and the posts I have read from many of them are extremely biased on demonstrate closed mindedness. There isn't any way to say that $787 stimulus was successful when 2.4 million jobs were lost since then. $787 was more than the income that was lost before those 2.4 million jobs were lost. The government "Do as I say, not as I do" mantra is the exact opposite of a free market economy. That is why it didn't work.
But let us say this, that stimulus failed because it was a Monopoly in the White House, House of Representatives, and the Senate. They refuse to admit that they are the reason that jobs aren't being created and that there was not at least a 2 million job gain as a result of $787 billion. There was no reason for it not have resulted in net job increases except the government didn't "invest" any of it. They rewarded their political allies with it, and that is all they did.
