Obama’s Strategy Was “Tried In The First Stimulus Bill. And Yet OurUnemployment Rate Remains Above 9 Percent.”
“Even if these measures were fully funded, would
they do much good? We already have the answer: They were tried in the first stimulus bill. And yet our
unemployment rate remains above 9 percent.”

Companies Say Obama’s Jobs Plan Won’t Cause Them To Hire.
“The dismal state of the economy is
the main reason many companies are reluctant to hire workers, and few executives are saying that 
President Obama’s jobs plan —
while welcome
will change their minds any time soon.”
(Motoko Rich,
“Employers Say Jobs Plan Won’t Lead To Hiring Spur,” 
“Many Employers Dismissed The Notion That Any Particular Tax Break Or Incentive WouldBe Persuasive.”
“As President Obama faced an uphill battle in Congress to win support even for
portions of the plan, many employers dismissed the notion that any particular tax break orincentive would be persuasive. Instead, they said they tended to hire more workers or expand
when the economy improved.”

Over A Year: “I Did Not Hear Anything In The Speech That Would Help Me Specifically.”
I've gone through my life savings, my home equity loan, and now I'm going through my 401 (k), just tocover daily life expenses. I'm job searching 60 hours a week. But I did not hear anything in the speechthat would help me specifically. Businesses don't know what health care will cost, whether they'll get taxbreaks or not. All of these things are unstable so how does a business make a decision to hire andexpand?

Teacher Who Stood Behind Obama As He Signed The 2010 Measure To Save Teachers Jobs WasLaid Off Shortly After.
“For a while, it looked like a federal measure aimed at supporting teachers and
other state and local workers had helped save Amanda VanNess's job. It turned out it was only atemporary reprieve. President Obama signed a bill in August aimed at saving teachers' jobs, withEducation Secretary Arne Duncan, Council of Economic Advisers chief Christina Romer and teacherAmanda Van Ness on hand. In July, the 25-year-old Ms. VanNess lost her job teaching kindergarten at Pickett Elementary School in Toledo, Ohio, as a result of cuts that came after voters rejected an income-
tax increase aimed at shoring up a budget deficit at the Toledo Public School District.”

package, which was approved by the House in a largely party-line vote earlier Tuesday, includes $10billion to keep an estimated 160,000 teachers on the job, and $16 billion to help states meet theirMedicaid payments for six months. Democrats say the aid to states could also help keep 150,000 police
officers and other workers on payrolls.”

The White House Was Rebuffed By The Democratic Congress In 2009 When They Proposed ManyOf The Same Tax Hikes.
The unwillingness to embrace some of the major White House tax and revenueproposals has frustrated administration officials. They note that lawmakers, many of them supporters of 
the president’s ambitious agenda, clamor to hold down the deficit while balking at the
proposals tofinance his program.

Giving Were Pretty Close To
To pay for half of his $634 billion health reform fund, President Barack Obama has proposed limiting itemized tax deductions
from mortgage interest to charitabledeductions
for wealthier Americans starting in 2011. The plan may not be dead-on-arrival
but it is pretty close. In my reporting across Capitol Hill today, I couldn't find any strong support forthe plan. And it's strongly opposed by several key Democrats on the key Senate FinanceCommittee, including chairman Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont.
