Dion: ‘We tried our plan, and it worked’

Really, Mr. President? Let’s see … you spent over $800 billion on “stimulus,” you’ve spent over $1 trillion more than you’ve taken in each year since you’ve been president, and you’ve added almost $6 trillion to our national debt. What did we get for that?

The poverty rate has increased for five years in a row.

Unemployment plus underemployment is 15 percent;

More than 1⁄4 of all jobless Americans have been out of work for a year or more;

The number of Americans on food stamps has increased 45 percent;

The economy has recovered less than half of the jobs lost during the recession; and the U.S. national debt is larger than total national economic output for the first time since WWII. Your plan worked? I think not The choice is clear …do you want more of the same or is it time to try something else?
