President Obama prepping for the speech of his lifetime next Wednesday how to create a million jobs in -- fourteen months.
It'll be a doozy of a trick if He can pull it off but a new study from George Mason University shows hate it could be tougher than you think.
Consider this the original stimulus you remember that.
The American recovery and reinvestment act passed just two years ago created jobs yes but.
Just 42% of those -- of those jobs went to people who were unemployed.
Most of the stimulus jobs some 47%.
Went to people who work already working.
Let me say it again people left jobs to get government jobs -- you when I paid for it.
Worst the private employers typically didn't replace the people who left so we ended up simply moving thousands of people to government payrolls.
Not a good track record -- -- me and the study just goes to show you why government jobs programs are a waste of time at.
