"He still finds himself in the catch-22 of defending the results of the previous stimulus package and yet professing the urgent need for a second one.

"Obama and others in his administration still claim that his policies are working as intended and that they have saved or created anywhere from 600,000 to 2 million jobs (depending on what day it is and who is speaking). So if that is true then the true job losses would have to be from 4.6 million to 6 million in order to net out at the 4 million job loss figured provided by the BLS. If that is an example of his policies working as intended then it is really no wonder why the American people have started electing candidates who do not support those policies."
