Aren't you the nitwit who claims to do research?? What happened??<quoted text>
The stimulus did nothing that was promised except increase the deficit.
Obamacare will do nothing that was promised except make health care more inaccessible and cost the taxpayers money.
You need to stop listening to propagandists. That's the problem, Homer. Not me or Fox News.
Anytime any media source is behind those in power - it's time to raise red flags. Put the white one away.
"Why Obama should run on the success of the stimulus
Everything you think you know about it is wrong: stimulus saved the US economy, and only Republicans stopped it working better.
"Over the next week, as Republicans gather for their national convention in Tampa, Florida, we can rest assured that the Obama epithet game will be in full effect. He's a tax-and-spender; he's an inveterate expander of federal power; he's weakened America in the world; he was born in Kenya and might be a Muslim (well, you'll only hear that if Republicans pull an Akin). What they likely won't hear is the truth about why the US economy remains in mediocre shape, and who is to blame for this distressing situation.
For that, most Americans would be wise to simply turn off the TV and pick up a copy of Michael Grunwald's exceptional new book, The New New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Era. Grunwald, a correspondent for Time magazine, has written what is likely the single best book to date on the inner workings of the Obama presidency and the $800bn stimulus measure (or American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) that Grunwald persuasively argues is Obama's greatest political achievement.
That conclusion may seem odd to the casual observer of US politics. In the more than three years since it passed, the stimulus has been tagged as a boondoggle that exploded the debt and did precious little to turn around the country's economic malaise. It is derided en masse by Republicans and largely ignored by Democrats.
But, in exhaustive detail, Grunwald points out how everything you think you know about the stimulus is wrong. While the Recovery Act created 2.5 million jobs, stopped the country's economic hemorrhaging and launched a weak recovery, its long-term, transformative impact is the real story.
According to Grunwald, the stimulus measure was "the biggest and most transformative energy bill in history", and "the biggest and most transformative education reform bill since the Great Society". It was also a "transformative healthcare bill", the "biggest foray into industrial policy since FDR", the "biggest expansion of antipoverty initiatives since Lyndon Johnson", and – ironically, for a president oft-accused of raising taxes – the "biggest middle-class tax cut since Reagan". It rebuilt bridges and paved roads; weatherized and retrofitted homes; and spurred the move toward high-speed rail."
