What Obama has Done for America


  • Stimulus caused a net gain of 2.5 million jobs.  Without the stimulus, 2.5 million more people would not have jobs today. (September 2011)
  • Private sector lost 4.6% of its jobs before Obama came into office
  • Before the Stimulus passed the economy was literally nose-diving.  5 months after the Stimulus passed the recession ended, we were stable
  • Since the end of the Great Recession the private sector grew by 1.6% (September 2011)
  • Impeding recovery is the loss of over 600,000 state and municipal jobs since Obama entered office.
  • If state and municipal jobs stayed the same, unemployment would currently be 8.86% or better (September 2011)

Health Care

  • Gave businesses financial aide to extend health care to retirees who are 55 and not yet eligible for Medicare.
  • 4 million prescription rebate checks mailed to seniors
  • 18.9 million seniors have received free medical services
  • Allowed 1 million additional young adults to become insured through their parents insurance
