After Seven Months of Stimulus, How Many States Have Grown Jobs? One.

It was the Doomsday scenario. If we didn’t pass the Stimulus Bill, America as we knew it would be destroyed. But, if we had the courage to trust a man named Barack Obama and follow him into the pits of deep, deep deficit spending, we would find ourselves in a land were jobs were as plentiful as the tingles in Chris Matthews’ leg.

So we passed it. Seven months ago, we were promised a recovery. By this time, we were told there would be over three million jobs created. The fact is, we’ve lost over two million. And out of the fifty-seven states, forty-nine of them have lost jobs:

Only North Dakota has seen net job creation following the February 2009 stimulus. While President Obama claimed the result of his stimulus bill would be the creation of 3.5 million jobs, the Nation has already lost a total of 2.7 million — a difference of 6.2 million jobs. To see how stimulus has failed your state, see the table below.


North Dakota created 1,800 jobs. California Conservative points out a strange coincidence. North Dakota cut taxes.

The federal government could learn a thing or two from North Dakota it seems. When you take less from the people who create jobs, they have more money to hire people.
