The stimulus failed by the Obama administrations own measures. We were told that unemployment wouldn't go above 8% if we passed the stimulus. Instead, the unemployment rate was over 8% for the better part of 4 years. We were told that unemployment would be under 6% by now, but it's still at 7.9%. There's no question that Obama's stimulus was a failure by it's proponents own measures.
