WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the one-year anniversary of the $787 billion stimulus package. Graham voted against the bill.
“The President is fighting a losing battle trying to convince the American people his gigantic stimulus package was a success. No amount of political spin will change the fact the bill created more government than jobs and dramatically increased our national debt. It’s no wonder his appeals are falling on deaf ears.
“One year after the passage of the stimulus we have lost millions of jobs and dramatically increased our national debt. All of this could have been avoided if President Obama and the Democrats in Congress had really sought out bipartisan solutions to the economic problems facing our nation. The sooner they face up to this fact, the better.”
