RUSH: I want people to understand this, because it’s key to understanding what’s going on with the right-to-work. The stimulus is the greatest example. From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, here are the real numbers. State public sector jobs benefited the most from the stimulus, the Obama stimulus. The date of this story is October 13th, 2009.
Seventy-five percent of 8,000 stimulus related jobs accounted for so far, back on October 13, 2009, were public sector jobs protected by the federal infusion by the stimulus into state and local government coffers. That number comes from the governor’s office. The jobs protected included teachers, cops, and other government workers. Of the remaining 25% it’s not clear how many were private sector jobs. That 75% number could be even higher. So here’s how it works, and this is key to understand it. Obama just can’t go to the Treasury and write himself a check. Obama took the occasion, took the opportunity of an economic downturn, took advantage of his honeymoon period, first black president, the karma, the aura, the excitement of a new presidency to basically defraud the American people.
