Vice President Joe Biden has once again put in his two cents about the economic stimulus. Via The Washington Post:
"To those who say that our economic decisions haven't saved jobs, it simply hasn't worked, I say, 'Look around you,' " Biden said in his appearance at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College in Cantor's Richmond area district.
"I say, 'Don't let your opposition to the Recovery Act blind you to the results. Come see what I see.' Look, workers rehired, factories reopened, cops on the street, teachers in the classroom, progress toward getting our economy back on the move."
Well said, Mr. Vice President. Of course, never mind the fact that the unemployment rate for June was 9.5 percent (the highest it's been in over two decades), and all signs point to double digit unemployment before any improvement is expected.
With nearly one in 10 Americans currently unemployed, maybe Biden should go see what they see before declaring the stimulus a success.
