Scott Brown came out punching immediately after being sworn in as a senator, claiming that the stimulus hasn’t created one new job.
Convening his first news conference, Brown said the last economic stimulus bill didn’t create a single new job. He added that it may have retained some jobs, but didn’t create any new ones.
Republicans have questioned the way President Barack Obama’s administration has counted jobs created or saved with stimulus money. But most economists believe new jobs were created even though unemployment rates rose.
It’s hard to guess what motivated him to say this. It’s DeMint-esque.
