I used to have a print of this on my office… first job out of school!

I have here in my hand a list of 153 structurally deficient bridges

Some context – suddenly, there’s 153 bridges about to fall down.  And somehow the first stimulus package forgot to do anything about them.  Oops.

Obama vs Fact Check

Not so great, even according to the AP :

Obama did not spell out exactly how he would pay for the measures contained in his nearly $450 billion American Jobs Act but said he would send his proposed specifics in a week to the new congressional supercommittee charged with finding budget savings. White House aides suggested that new deficit spending in the near term to try to promote job creation would be paid for in the future – the “out years,” in legislative jargon – but they did not specify what would be cut or what revenues they would use.

Essentially, the jobs plan is an IOU from a president and lawmakers who may not even be in office down the road when the bills come due.
