Shea-Porter: Yes, the Stimulus Did Work

Sat, November 12, 2011

President Obama, January 8, 2009:

We start 2009 in the midst of a crisis unlike any we have seen in our lifetime… Nearly two million jobs have now been lost…  Manufacturing has hit a twenty-eight year low. Many businesses cannot borrow or make payroll. Many families cannot pay their bills or their mortgage. Many workers are watching their life savings disappear. And many, many Americans are both anxious and uncertain of what the future will hold.

That is why I have moved quickly to work with my economic team and leaders of both parties on an American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan that will immediately jumpstart job creation and long-term growth.

On February 13, 2009, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter cast her vote in favor of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

In May, 2010, the independent, bipartisan Congressional Budget Office reported on the results:

…the $800 billion economic stimulus package “has had a slightly bigger effect on the U.S. economy than was projected when it was passed more than a year ago.”

 “Through the first quarter of 2010, the stimulus boosted employment by an estimated 1.3 million to 2.8 million jobs, about a quarter or half million more than projected. Gross domestic product was 1.7 to 4.1 percentage points higher than it would have been without the stimulus.”
