and helped save thousands of state jobs
I keep seeing this claim, but I have yet to see anyone prove it.
How do you "save" a job?
Since I am still working, did the Obama admin "save" my job?
I have yet to see or hear anyone explain how you prove you "saved" a job.
Much of the Stim funding went to State governments. Most states are in really bad shape right now, b/c it turns out that everybody was invested in these Toxic assets to a much greater degree than they let on, property values have plummeted, and tax receipts have plummeted - all at the same time.
The stim bill helped many states avoid cutting employees, in many cases first responders, and I don't have to tell you how important it is to keep them in biz, MM. Let me hunt up some articles for you, though, b/c you asked.
