Democrat Delusion discussed: Pelosi Without Obama's Stimulus, Unemployment Would Now Be 15%

(CNSNews.com) – Since President Barack Obama signed his $825 billion economic stimulus plan into law in February 2009, the national unemployment rate has risen from 8.2 percent to 9.1 percent. But House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said at her press briefing Thursday that if the stimulus had not been enacted the unemployment rate would now be 15 percent.

At a press briefing only a month ago, Pelosi said that if the stimulus not been enacted unemployment would have reached 14.5 percent by the time of the November 2010 elections.

“I think it’s really important to know that President Obama was a job creator from day one,” Pelosi said at her Thursday briefing. “Now, was the ditch that we were in so deep that when you’re talking to people and they still don’t have a job, that that’s any consolation to them?  No.

“But I’ll tell you this,” said Pelosi, “if President Obama and the House congressional Democrats had not acted, we would be at 15 percent unemployment. Again, no consolation to those without a job, but an important point to make.”
