What Obama's Stimulus got right

In this clip the benefits of the Stimulus are expalined:


  1. One often left out benefit of the stimulus is the desperately needed funds for state governments. Even Rep. governors, such as Charlie Crist, understand this.

    California is experiencing a huge budget deficit and will may have to lay off thousands of state employees. The stimulus will help stop the bleeding and hopefully keep vital services such as fire, police and social services running at adequate levels as well as keeping people employed.

    Public sector jobs are jobs too.

  2. Yes. The money to state and local government is essential. I wish there were more, but what is there is good.
