    Stimulus saved jobs, but major cuts are coming

    This is how the stimulus affected Ohio which I assume is similar to it's impact in other states. I thought this was a good 2 year review of the stimulus. I thought someone interviewd in the article made a good point about how states benefited from the stimulus had much to do with how they spent their stimulus dollars.

    Do any of you feel that much of the stimulus was a waste of money in the sense that it is only delaying things that are going to happen anyway? The stimulus they say saved certain jobs and programs. But cuts to those jobs and programs seem to be coming anyway since the stimulus dollars are starting to run out. Should the stimulus had been better targeted?

    The stimulus did 4 things

    1. Inefficient spending
    2. Artificially influencing the natural cycle
    3. Funding seasonal jobs to reduce the unemployment rate
    4. Inflation

    They were 100% successful if this was what they were shooting for.
