Recovery Summer and the Stimulus: State by State

Over the next 10 weeks, we will be examining the impact of the “Stimulus” and “Recovery Summer” state by state. So far, the data we have examined indicates that the stimulus has been a complete and utter failure. Almost all 50 states have been negatively impacted.

Even further, the claims from the Obama administration that the recovery would have been worse without the Recovery Act are ridiculous in the face of their own data.

What is clear after over a year and half of “Stimulus” is that America is no further ahead, and rather, further behind than it was.

So please check back each day over the next 10 weeks as we reveal the effects of Obamanomics on each state.

In the meantime, check out this report on jobs lost state by state since the “Stimulus” law, courtesy of the Ways & Means Republicans:
