It’s Official: Obama’s Stimulus Program Failed

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos notes the assessment of Dr. Christina Romer, who heads President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisors:  the economic benefit of Obama’s stimulus bill, which economists have been unable to detect, already has been experienced; economic conditions, and unemployment in particular, won’t improve significantly for another year.

Given an unemployment rate still edging toward 10%, versus the administration’s promise that the stimulus program would keep unemployment under 8%, Dr. Romer’s testimony amounts to a confession of failure.

Hat tip to the Commentary website.
