  •  Nice try. Patently untrue, however. (0+ / 0-)

    The Economic Stimulus Act was passed in 2008 and well through the entire first term that funding was getting out to State and Local governments where it could do the most good.

    •  You mean the Bush administration tax rebates? (1+ / 0-)

      Or do you really mean the Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009?

      That was an Obama administratin act, and it didn't do anything for the unemployed.  It did pay back Democratic campaign backers and provide so much  money for research that Scientific American fretted about the prospects for an increase in academic fraud, but unemployment continued to climb.

      Not that it mattered to an administration with a legacy to mold.
