Statements about Stimulus

"The president promised that if he spent money on a stimulus program that unemployment would go to 5.7 percent or 6 percent. Those were his words."

"(President Barack Obama) said unemployment was never gonna go over 8 percent if we passed the stimulus plan."

Says Barack Obama had "huge majorities" in Congress during his first two years in office and "did nothing with them to create jobs in America."

Says a new report proves the stimulus supported by N.J. Democrats cost $278,000 per job.
