Cornyn Statement on the Five-Year Anniversary of Obama’s Failed Stimulus

I issued the following statement to mark the five-year anniversary of the signing of President Obama’s stimulus plan.

When the stimulus was first announced, we were promised it would lead to ‘shovel-ready’ jobs and get our economy moving. Five years later, our economy is still sluggish, Americans are dropping out of the workforce by the thousands, and the President’s latest big government experiment, Obamacare, is now on track to slash 2 million more jobs from the workforce.   Read more »

Senator Cornyn Statement on 4th Anniversary of the Failed Stimulus

Today is the 4th anniversary of the President's stimulus. On the first anniversary of the stimulus, Administration officials flocked to events around the country to tout the plan’s benefits. The President said it had been run "cleanly, smoothly and transparently," and one of my colleagues went so far as to call it "wildly successful." Fast-forward a few years—with 12 million Americans still looking for work—you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone at the White House eager to talk about the $1 trillion boondoggle.

The Status Of America Three Years After President Obama Took Office....

The following is a statement from State Representative Raul Torres (HD-33):

On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed the stimulus bill into law. Three years later, it has clearly failed by the president’s own standards.

Obama and his advisers made many promises about the stimulus – all of which have proven false:

  • They promised millions of shovel ready jobs “immediately,” but those jobs are still nowhere to be found.
