1.9 Million Fewer Americans Have Jobs Today Than When Obama Signed Stimulus

http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/after-28-months-stimulus-spending-19-mil

(CNSNews.com) Twenty-eight months after Congress passed President Obama’s signature economic stimulus law, and nearly one year after he declared the summer of 2010 to be “Recovery Summer,” 1.9 million fewer people are employed.

In February 2009, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that 141.7 million people were employed. By the end of May 2011 – the last month for which data are available – that number had fallen to 139.8 million, a difference of 1.9 million.

One can only speculate what

One can only speculate what might have happened had the stimulus package not been signed!

Would be good to have had the projections from "back then" to compare.   Would things have been better under another Bush?
