For the First Time– Plurality in US Now Believe the Obama Stimulus Bill Hurt the Economy
Obama and Democrats tripled the national deficit in less than one year with their $787 billion failed stimulus.
Obama increased the national debt to $12 Trillion.
And he nearly doubled the unemployment rate from the Bush years since his failed Stimulus Plan was passed.
For the first time a plurality of Americans believe the Pelosi-Obama trillion dollar Stimulus boondoggle hurt the economy rather than helped it.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 30% of voters nationwide believe the $787-billion economic stimulus plan has helped the economy. However, 38% believe that the stimulus plan has hurt the economy. This is the first time since the legislation passed that a plurality has held a negative view of its impact.
The number who believe that the stimulus plan has hurt the economy rose from 28% in September, to 31% in October, and 34% in November before jumping to 38% this month. The week after the president signed the bill, 34% said it would help the economy, while 32% said it would hurt.
