NRSC Launches New Video Highlighting The Failed Promises & Economic Agenda Of Washington Democrats
Three years ago today, despite an already skyrocketing federal debt, President Barack Obama – with the help of liberal U.S. Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin – rammed their $825 billion stimulus spending bill into law promising Americans that it would create millions of news jobs
In fact, Baldwin specifically promised the stimulus would create or save 67,000 jobs in Wisconsin but since the legislation was signed into law, Wisconsin has lost over 33,000 jobs because the Obama Administration was determined to spend their way out of this economic crisis instead of targeting the legislation to assist small business owners who are the true job creators of this country.
Notably, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a report just yesterday that found that the rate of unemployment in the United States has exceeded 8 percent since February 2009, making the past three years the longest stretch of high unemployment in this country since the Great Depression. Additionally they project that the unemployment rate will remain above 8 percent until 2014, which is again contrary to the promises of Obama and Baldwin.
“After three years, it’s become abundantly clear that the Obama-Baldwin stimulus, which spent billions of dollars growing the size of government instead of helping small business owners create jobs, was an utter failure, said National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) spokesman Lance Trover. “With 215,767 unemployed individuals in Wisconsin, the Badger State deserves better than the tax-and-spend, big government policies of liberals Barack Obama and Tammy Baldwin.”
