Barrack Obama and DEMOCRATS have thus far committed $10.5 Trillion Dollars of your tax dollars to "stimulate" our economy. Here is a list of major expenditures thus far:


  • $787 billion on The Stimulus Bill also known as American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
  • $410 billion on The 2009 Federal Budget Omnibus Spending Bill
  • $400 billion in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac bailouts
  • $345 billion in FHA housing rescue & Making Home Affordable bailout
  • $245 billion Citigroup loan-loss backstop
  • $218 billion TARP funds to hundreds of banks through its Capital Purchase Program
  • $100 billion Taxpayer funds used to buy up at least $500 billion of toxic assets
  • $97 billion Bank of America loan-loss backstop
  • $70 billion in TARP Bailout money to AIG
  • $70 billion Consumer and Business Lending Initiative also known as TALF
  • $53 billion in bailouts to General Motors

  • $25 billion Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing program
  • $18.5 billion in bailouts to Chrysler
  • $11.3 billion in 2009 FDIC bank takeovers

President Obama, his Economic Advisers and Democrats promised the Economy would improve immediately if the Stimulus Bill and Omnibus Spending Bills were passed and warned of economic Armageddon if they didn't pass ASAP.

  • President Obama has vowed to create 3.5 million jobs by 2010.

  • Obama's economic team argued that without the stimulus spending, the unemployment rate would hit 8.8% and with the package, the unemployment rate would only reach 7%

At the White House, Obama said on Feb. 4, “A failure to act, and act now, will turn crisis into a catastrophe and guarantee a longer recession, a less robust recovery, and a more uncertain future.”

Here are the results of President OBAMAS & Democrats Economic Stimulus Spending:

  • -467,000 Non-Farm Payroll Jobs were lost in June
  • -3,382,000 Jobs have been lost since OBAMA was inaugurated
  • National Unemployment is now 9.5%, the worst unemployment rate since 1983
  • Unemployment has gone from 7.2% to now 9.5% since OBAMA was inaugurated
  • The consumer confidence index fell to 49.3 in June from 54.8 in May. Economists polled by Reuters had expected a healthier reading of 55.0 for the month
  • First Quarter Gross Domestic Product has declined -5.5% since Obama was inaugurated
  • The index of current business conditions tumbled to 44.8 in June from 61.3 in May, a 27% decline.
  • Price Of Oil when Obama was Inaugurated was $38.74 per Barrel. Today the Price of Oil is $71.49 per barrel meaning Oil has increased 85% since Obama became President.
  • Average Price of a Gallon of Gas when Obama was inaugurated was $1.89. Today the Average Price of a Gallon of gas is $2.69 meaning gas has gone up 32% since Obama became President.
  • U.S. home prices have fallen 7.1% since Obama was inaugurated. The housing slump has reduced the median price of an existing home 26 percent from the July 2006 peak
  • DOW Industrial the day Obama was inaugurated was 8,228.10, DOW today with a DEM Congress, President OBAMA & the so-called Stimulus Bill = 8,163.60.

I want you to know that i am totally agaist this new health care bill. I believe that it will only hurt the american population, not help it. It is going to be a great hardship to all low and medium income families. Please vote NO for this new health care plan.

In numerous polls, the public has voiced their displeasure at the much maligned bank bailout, but most don't know which president signed the controversial act into law. Only a third of Americans (34%) correctly say the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) was enacted by the Bush administration. Nearly half (47%) incorrectly believe TARP was passed under President Obama. Another 19% admit they do not know which president signed the bank bailout into law. Notably, there is no partisan divide on the question. Just 36% of Republicans, 35% of independents and 34% of Democrats know that the government bailout of banks and financial institutions was signed into law by former President Bush. And Democrats (46%) are just as likely as Republicans (50%) to say TARP was passed under Obama.

Guess your site falls in the 47% falsely believes category. Better luck on your fact checking next time.

Whoops again...

The Republicans are linking the decision to pour about $50 billion into 'Government Motors' to the new administration's energy, health care and housing plans -- all of which, they argue, will result in higher costs for consumers and bigger national deficits." In fact, the Obama administration did not commit all of the $50 billion in aid to GM; Bush pledged $13.4 billion in assistance to GM in December.

And what's more, it looks like it turned out to be a good bet by both presidents!
