The state of the States
This summer, White House officials have been traveling all over the country on a “Recovery Summer” tour. The general purpose of the tour is to tout the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (aka the “stimulus” bill) as essential in saving and creating “millions” of jobs and encouraging economic growth. However, with a stalled economy and growing unemployment, we decided to take a closer look. We’ve compiled a fact sheet for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia and have found a very different story than that being told on the “Recovery Summer” tour.
