Stimulus: bringing results home to Colorado

  • 9 Comments
  • by: Gorky Pulviczek

The White House just released its projections for the job creation results of the stimulus package.  It looks like good news for Colorado – 60,000 jobs created over the next two years.  This seems to be very good news for those Representatives and Senators who supported the stimulus – details below the fold.

According to http://www.coworkforce.com/lmi… , Colorado lost 47,000 jobs in the past 12 months.  Although somewhat better than the national rate, it still speaks to widespread economic misery and further losses yet to come.  Today the White House posted its projections for each Congressional District in the United States at http://www.whitehouse.gov/asse… .  The results for Colorado look very good at first glance; per-District:


CD1 7,900

CD2 9,100

CD3 8,300

CD4 8,800

CD5 8,500

CD6 9,400

CD7 8,000

This will more than offset the 2008 losses, and, hopefully help stem the 2009 losses as well.  If this turns out as projected, it will be very bad news for Coffman, and Perlmutter.  Even Lamborn might not be safe despite being supported by Colorado Springs – he voted against economic recovery for his district.

      1. Push that much money out there and some jobs will be created. You can discuss how many, how effective they are, is it the best approach. But to say it won’t create any job – that’s an idiotic thing to say.

      2. Claiming the stimulus would only help out districts with Democratic representation? Well, it looks like CD-6 will save or create more jobs than Boulder and Denver! And that seems to be a national trend

        What do you know, yet another dumb right wing argument debunked by a little common sense.
