7 Months After Stimulus 49 of 50 States Have Lost Jobs

House Committe on Ways And Means [1]
Thursday, Oct 22nd, 2009

The table below compares the White House’s February 2009 projection [2] of the number of jobs that would be created by the 2009 stimulus law (through the end of 2010) with the actual change in state payroll employment [3] through September 2009 (the latest figures available).  According to the data, 49 States and the District of Columbia have lost jobs since stimulus was enacted.  Only North Dakota has seen net job creation following the February 2009 stimulus.  While President Obama claimed the result of his stimulus bill would be the creation of 3.5 million jobs, the Nation has already lost a total of 2.7 million – a difference of 6.2 million jobs.  To see how stimulus has failed your state, see the table below.
