New CBO Report Finds That Even Now Hundreds of Thousands of People Still Owe Their Jobs to the Recovery Act

Oh, what do you know. Mitt Romney lied again. Asshole.

A new Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report estimates that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) increased the number of people employed by between 200,000 and 1.5 million jobs in March.[1]   In other words, between 200,000 and 1.5 million people employed in March owed their jobs to the Recovery Act.  This estimate, by Congress’ non-partisan economic and budget analysts, is more comprehensive than the 160,000 jobs that ARRA recipients reported in April, CBO explains.
