2009 Job Stimulus DID Work

Reposted from Jobsanger

The Republican mantra of late has been that the job stimulus program enacted in 2009 didn't work, so it would be futile to do it again. The chart above shows that is simply not true. The program brought the country from a huge negative job growth (created by george Bush) to a small positive growth. The stimulus wasn't large enough so it didn't have the huge effect it that was hoped for -- but it DID work. Much more needs to be done now, because massive job creation is the only way out of our current economic mess.
