    After 16 months and $20 million in federal grants, a Seattle "Green Jobs" program has created only 14 jobs.

    And Obama wants to do another Stimulus.

          You have that right. He needs to stop borrowing to stimulate. What should be done is give the corporations tax breaks so they can move work back into the Country and employee quite a few Americans. Stop the bleeding with foreclosures by actually assisting the homeowners more and not allowing the banks to drag there feet. Stop giving tax breaks to the very wealthy. There are so many things he can do that I am at a loss for words. sad

            They don't borrow money to stimulate the economy, they just print it... even more dangerous! sad

            Wait a minute...they got tax breaks for moving business OUT, and now you want to give them breaks to bring them back IN?

            Oh please! Enough of the coddling. Time they pay US back for the freebies THEY'VE been getting!

            No taxes, tax rebates, taxbreaks..on multi-billion dolla profits!
            And directly on the backs of the middle class.

            The upper classes have had a party, and we got the bill.

            OUR rebate is due!

              Sory I didn't read all the way through AE. There are so many people who come on here JUST to bash Obama, I though you were one of them.

        He will have to, so much for not hitting the new debt level before election day.

        Democrats and stimulus is about giving money to constituents in exchange for votes. It's the only reason the democrat party exists.

          From where I stand, both parties are guilty of this, not just the dems.

            Dan,

            You are correct, both parties are very guilty of this

              Why thank you. Yes, I know they are both guilty of it. As well as both guilty of most other things we can list. Which is just another reminder of why Washington is hopelessly corrupt in a money and power struggle. Both sides are equally to blame, despite their shoutings otherwise.

        So, rather than jobs programs you would rather pay 6 dollars a gallon gas with the Fed doing QE?

          lady_love158posted 6 years agoin reply to this

          It's not an either or. The fed will do another QE to boost the stock market and reward Obama's wall street contributors and to create something positive to point to while he tries to argue for re-election. The stimulus is just for buying votes.

          Really? The 2 have nothing to do with each other as evident by the company in Seattle. 14 jobs and no solutions. Typical.  Lets see, Obama has raised the gas tax once and has plans to do it again. Gm wants him to add $1 tax to aid the auto company, He refuses to explore the energy resouces that are untapped here. So whether he creates a stimulus or not. Obama policies are already heading us to $6 per gallon gas. In fact that was something he said needed to happen on his campaign trail and brought up again during his first 100 days.

          So what does repairing a bridge have to do with the price of gas? Or repairing a road? or any of the infrstructure projects? Nothing.

        What's a piddly $20 mill when the Fed created over $20 trillion over the past 3 or so years with no significant improvement in the economy?

        Really? 20 mill? that's not even worth talking about.

          First, 20 mill here 20 mill there so what. It is that king of intelligence why the congress spent to m uch over the years.

          WOW WE created 20Trillion everyone. In just the last 3 years. REALLY? so where is the money, 20 trillion would pay of the debt, pay for the budget and we would have money left over. Not to mention we would not have to raise the debt limit.Time to stop believing the talking points and those uninformed blogs you read.

      Obama's plan:

      1.Tax Relief: President Obama will propose tax relief incentives for companies that create jobs and hire new workers.
      2.Infrastructure Investment: The president wants the government to invest in clean energy and new construction projects to build schools and transportation.
      3.Assistance for Long Term Unemployed: Obama wants to help those who have been out of work for six months or more, which adds up to about 6 million Americans. Specifically the president is looking at a program such as Georgia Works – which gives unemployed Americans eight weeks of training at a local company while allowing them to still collect their unemployment benefits. And it’s no cost to the participating company.

        So what happened with the first Trillion he spent this way. The Government doesn't create jobe. The Private sector does.
