What Obama Has Done For: Jobs

  • Stimulus caused a net gain of up to 2.9 million jobs.  Without the stimulus, 2.9 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)
  • Passed HIRE Act, giving a tax credit to companies that hire workers who have been out of work for 2+ months
