Stimulus Jobs Disappearing - - Also Giving Lie To Right-Wing Claims

It's a talk radio mantra..."the stimulus didn't create any jobs..." so how come all these stimulus-funded jobs are set to disappear?

The stimulus created some public sector jobs - and those jobs will end when the funds end.

What part of that do you not understand Rowen?

Now that helps!

Maybe we can use a term you will understand Rowen - how about "sustainable"?

These were not sustainable jobs - they only existed because the government spent the majority of the stimulus money on itself temporarily creating unnecessary jobs that only added to the size of government.

Obviously the person getting the job is marginally better off than being on never-ending unemployment compensation, but this makes the overall situation for the economy worse - not better.

Marginally-better off...nice.

Since you don't want to response with anything of substance - at least now we know who the real liar is.
