When Barack Obama started telling us about jobs that his economic policies would “save or create,” many noted those first two weeks. I mean, how can he measure the number of jobs saved? He can tell us that, well, his economic program is succeeding because if we hadn’t had it, we would have lost 3,500,000 more jobs than we did.
Now, touting the success of his program, he’s asking to do it all over again. So, maybe that’ll help save another few million jobs because the last one sure didn’t create any. We’ve lost over 2.8 million jobs since the first one passed in February. Apparently convinced that more government money will help continue the progress made by the first “stimulus”, “President Obama will propose using $200 billion from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) to support creating jobs“.
His own words notwithstanding, guess the Democrat is not really aware of the private sector’s capacity to create jobs.
Some people just never learn.
