Yes, there was a net job loss and, before the stimulus we were losing hundreds of thousands per month and after the stimulus we've leveled off.
We lost hundreds of thousands of jobs for three months of 2008 with a Democrat controlled Congress. In spite of that loss Bush had a 6.5 million net job gain. Obama economic policy put another 4 million on the unemployment roles. The recession ended in June 2009 and every month of 2010 the job losses were greater on a month to month basis vs. 2009. The stimulus was signed in February 2009 so how do you explain higher unemployment in 2010 than 2009?
