Says U.S. Sen Sherrod Brown "promised that the first stimulus bill would fund the Brent Spence Bridge."
Says Sen. Sherrod Brown admitted "that his $787 billion stimulus law failed" and "after specifically attacking Republicans for wanting to lower Americans' taxes, (he) now claims that his stimulus bill 'didn't do enough' to lower taxes."
Says signs posted at projects funded by the federal stimulus act has cost "20 or 40 million" dollars.
Since Sherrod Brown and the Democrats "rammed" the economic stimulus bill through, "Ohio's unemployment rate has risen to 9.6 percent, above the national average."
"They tried to give us $400 million to build a high-speed train that goes 39 miles an hour."
Says Lee Fisher "wanted a $1.1 billion tax increase which could have driven countless jobs out of state."
"Since February 2009, the private sector has lost millions of jobs while the federal government has grown by hundreds of thousands of workers."
Since the Democrats’ stimulus went into effect last year, Ohio has lost about 150,000 Jobs.
