National unemployment rate rises to 10.2 percent

Your monthly reminder that the stimulus was and is an epic failure.

Unemployment continues to rise, which highlights the utter failure of Obama's stimulus package. Nine months ago, White House officials promised that if we passed the stimulus bill, unemployment wouldn’t rise above 8 percent. They either lied or made a terrible miscalculation. Either way, they were spectacularly wrong, and citizens are feeling the effects of politicians’ spend-happy miscalculations.

Remember this when politicians make promises about Obamacare that sound too good to be true. Liberals were wrong about the stimulus and they are wrong about the effects of socializing health care.
