Sure we have! The only thing this stimulus package has created is thousands of government jobs. If this has been so good, why does the administration feel they need to send out people to 35 communities to explain why it has done well? Is it because we can't see any benefits from it? You be the judge.

Exactly! If the program really worked they wouldn't have to say anything.

it only created job to be filled by the people they laid off elsewhere. it created no 'new' jobs for the currently unemployed. it was also geographical in it benefit. if you quiz the road crews around here you'll find they are out of texas or illinois, not missouri. i personally have not had one benefit from the spending of that 787B that I will have to help pay for. what a rip off. they think we are so stupid we'll just listen to what they say. well, i say vote everyone of the little stinkers out of office when they term is up. and that's how i feel
