Reality vs. White House Rhetoric

September 10, 2009

Today, the White House issued an updated release of the number of jobs “created or saved” as a result of the Democrats’ so-called stimulus bill.  Contrary to the Administration’s continued claims of jobs “created or saved” by stimulus, former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich broke the code when he said last week of such estimates that, “It is almost impossible to measure how many jobs are created and lost.  You don’t know.  We will never know.”  But what we do know, as the chart below shows, is that over 3 million American jobs have been eliminated since Democrats began claiming stimulus had “saved and created” thousands of jobs.
