Do you mean was it effective? Why wasn't it effective? or Who got the money? All of those are valid questions and good luck getting an straight answer to any of them. I think the bottom line is we took $800 billion dollars essentially all debt to allow the government to spend into our economy which in Obama theory would create jobs etc. etc. In the end, the majority of the money went to bailouts, controversial social and labor organization, and generally got pissed away with little or nothing to show for it but future debt. The American public should be outraged after being duped this badly. Government needs to focus its efforts on creating a "positive business environment" and that will in turn create a lot of jobs in the private sector. Obama and company have no interest in that approach because it does not fit their agenda for marching toward a socialist state with dependence on the government for everything. WB
