To respond to the Great Recession, the primary objective for ARRA was to save and create jobs almost immediately. Secondary objectives were to provide temporary relief programs for those most impacted by the recession and invest in infrastructure, education, health, and renewable energy. The approximate cost of the economic stimulus package was estimated to be $787 billion at the time of passage, later revised to $831 billion between 2009 and 2019.[1] The Act included direct spending in infrastruct...

The debate over the law was quite contentious as Republicans, still stung by their defeat during the 2008 election used the new spending in the stimulus law to rally their conservative base. With Democrats in control of the White House and both houses of Congress the Republican opposition was no obstacle so on February 17, 2009, President Obama signed the legislation making it the first major legislation of his administration.

Watch more Politics 101 videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/151881-How-To-Understand-the-Federal-Stimulus-Package Our economy's in the worst crisis since the Depression, and we need to turn things around. The government moved fast to pass the Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Plan – $787 billion of investment and tax cuts that will create 3.5 million jobs. Here are the plan's goals. Step 1: Understand the basics Break the cycle. Right now, consumers are worried about the economy. They aren’t spending, so businesses are struggling. When businesses struggle, people lose jobs. When people lose jobs, they cut their spending. It’s a vicious cycle, one that the recovery package aims to break. Step 2: Job creation Create jobs. The most important part of the package is job creation. The plan includes $150 billion to fund clean energy, technology, and infrastructure projects, which will employ millions of Americans looking for work. Step 3: Move toward a green economy Create green jobs, which put people back to work today, and make us more energy independent in the future. The projects in the package include: Modernizing the country’s electrical grid Developing wind turbines, solar panels, biofuels, and advanced vehicle battery systems Investing in clean water, flood control, and environmental restoration And increasing energy-efficiency in homes and offices. Step 4: Improve infrastructure To compete in a 21st-century economy, we also need to provide jobs that help construct a 21st-century infrastructure using 21st-century technology. The plan includes: Upgrading our crumbling roads and bridges Improving public transit and rail systems Modernizing the health-care system for long-term savings Funding biomedical, science, and engineering research And extending broadband services to underserved communities across the country. Step 5: Improve education Improve education to make America more competitive. To increase higher-education opportunities, college students will be eligible for a $2,500 tuition tax credit, $200 million will expand work-study programs, and the maximum Pell Grant – federal aid primarily for low-income students – will increase by $500. The package also provides more than $2 billion for early childhood development, and $13 billion in grants to ensure disadvantaged kids achieve high academic standards. Step 6: Unemployment benefits Help the unemployed, who are bearing the brunt of the economic crisis. Anyone who lost their job won’t have to pay income taxes on the first $2,400 of federal unemployment benefits, and government subsidies will make their health insurance more affordable. The package increases and extends unemployment benefits through 2009 and boosts food stamp benefits to offset rising food costs. Step 7: Tax relief Cut taxes and boost consumer confidence. The stimulus package includes $288 billion in tax cuts. In 2009 and 2010, President Obama’s signature 'Making Work Pay' tax cut will provide most individuals with $400 and most families with $800. Qualified retirees and disabled veterans will get a one-time $250 payment. These cuts ensure that working people pay less taxes, so they have more money to spend. Tip To help pump money into the economy over time, the 'Making Work Pay' tax credits won’t be distributed as a lump sum. Beginning in June, you’ll see an extra $13 in your weekly paycheck, and an extra $8 starting in January 2010. Step 8: Housing and auto credits Boost the housing and auto markets. To help buoy the housing market and stem foreclosures, the tax credit for first-time homebuyers will increase to $8,000. And if you purchase a new car, you can deduct the sales tax. These tax savings will translate into more people buying cars, which will help shore up the auto industry in addition to encouraging consumer spending. Step 9: Send money to states Help all 50 states. The economy can’t bounce back if states can’t balance their budgets, and if states suffer budget shortfalls, they can’t pay for essentials like public safety and other critical services, quality teachers, and school renovations. The package provides more than $50 billion for state services, plus an $87 billion increase in federal funding for Medicaid to states. Step 10: Work together Encourage optimism. We can’t expect the government to solve the financial crisis alone, or overnight. The private sector must contribute to job creation and economic growth. But the stimulus package is the first, critical step to getting our economy back on track. As President Obama said, 'We will turn this crisis into opportunity and emerge from our painful present into a brighter future.' Did You Know?

"Some of the reactionary economists urged that we should allow the liquidation to take its course until we had found bottom.... We determined that we would not follow the advice of the bitter-end liquidationists and see the whole body of debtors of the United States brought to bankruptcy and the savings of our people brought to destruction...Instead we met the situation with proposals to private business and to Congress of the most gigantic program of economic defense and counterattack ever evolved in the history of the Republic." -Hoover (Wikipedia) Hoover confronted a world of political possibilities when he returned home in 1919. Democratic Party leaders looked on him as a potential candidate for President, and President Wilson privately preferred Hoover as his successor. "There could not be a finer one," asserted Franklin D. Roosevelt, then a rising star from New York. Hoover briefly considered becoming a Democrat, but he believed that 1920 would be a Republican year. A self-described progressive and reformer, Hoover saw the presidency as a vehicle for improving the conditions of all Americans by encouraging public-private cooperation—what he termed "volunterism". Long before he had entered politics, he had denounced laissez-faire thinking.[32] At the outset of the Depression, Hoover claims in his memoirs that he rejected Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon's suggested "leave-it-alone" approach, and called many business leaders to Washington to urge them not to lay off workers or cut wages. Congress, desperate to increase federal revenue, enacted the Revenue Act of 1932, which was the largest peacetime tax increase in history.[52] The Act increased taxes across the board, so that top earners were taxed at 63% on their net income. The 1932 Act also increased the tax on the net income of corporations from 12% to 13.75%. The final attempt of the Hoover Administration to rescue the economy occurred in 1932 with the passage of the Emergency Relief and Construction Act, which authorized funds for public works programs and the creation of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation (RFC). The RFC's initial goal was to provide government-secured loans to financial institutions, railroads and farmers. The RFC had minimal impact at the time, but was adopted by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and greatly expanded as part of his New Deal. Even so, New Dealer Rexford Tugwell[56] later remarked that although no one would say so at the time, "practically the whole New Deal was extrapolated from programs that Hoover started." "For three long years," Roosevelt said in accepting his party's nomination, "I have been going up and down this country preaching that government . . . costs too much. I shall not stop that preaching." FDR campaigned in 1932 on a platform of slashing the size and cost of government, and of ending the "reckless and extravagant" spending of Herbert Hoover. Stop that preaching he didn't. He accused Hoover of presiding over "the greatest spending administration in peacetime in all our history . . . an administration that has piled bureau on bureau, commission on commission." He slammed the Republican's record of "reckless and extravagant" spending, and of thinking "that we ought to center control of everything in Washington as rapidly as possible." He mocked those who thought "a huge expenditure of public funds" was the best way to grow the economy of succumbing "to the illusions of economic magic." His running mate, Texas Congressman John Nance Garner, even warned that Hoover was "leading the country down the path of socialism." - Jeff Jacoby "Unemployment Relief" Recorded October 18, 1931 Full speech at The Authentic History Center Transcript at: http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/?pid=22855#axzz1wcDOCsEQ

Republicans and Dems it seems will be in a massive disagreement whether this government stimulus bundle had an positive or negative impact on the economy. Presently the best choice is promoting everyone to push congress to sign his multi-large stimulus plan. The current program aims to help home proprietors expand their mortgages together with an offer to supply rules to small enterprise entrepreneurs once they hire more employees and helping veterans find jobs. Businesses that are vulnerable to eco-friendly programs and projects may also be getting additional time of tax credits. The whole computation in the President's recommended programs could cost around $34.7 billion. The dpi was already part of a $447 billion package which Congress remains trying to face up to. Many people are pondering why this Obama stimulus bundle was produced. Its goal ended up being to instill confidence inside a then already ailing economy that was spiraling lower quite fast. Among the stimulus' plan ended up being to further limit or place a cap on bonuses provided to senior professionals whose companies were receiving TARP funds. Using this method it's goal ended up being to restore rely upon the finance industry.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) (Pub.L. 111--5), commonly referred to as the Stimulus or The Recovery Act, was an economic stimulus package enacted by the 111th United States Congress in February 2009 and signed into law on February 17, 2009, by President Barack Obama. To respond to the Great Recession, the primary objective for ARRA was to save and create jobs almost immediately. Secondary objectives were to provide temporary relief programs for those most impacted by the recession and invest in infrastructure, education, health, and renewable energy. The approximate cost of the economic stimulus package was estimated to be $787 billion at the time of passage, later revised to $831 billion between 2009 and 2019.[1] The Act included direct spending in infrastructure, education, health, and energy, federal tax incentives, and expansion of unemployment benefits and other social welfare provisions. The rationale for ARRA was from Keynesian macroeconomic theory, which argues that, during recessions, the government should offset the decrease in private spending with an increase in public spending in order to save jobs and stop further economic deterioration. Shortly after the law was passed, however, Keynesian economist and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman while supportive of the law, criticized the law for being too weak because it did not "even cover one third of the (spending) gap". Economists such as Martin Feldstein, Daron Acemoğlu, National Economic Council director Larry Summers, and Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences winners Joseph Stiglitz[54] and Paul Krugman[55] favored large economic stimulus to counter the economic downturn. While in favor of a stimulus package, Feldstein expressed concern over the act as written, saying it needed revision to address consumer spending and unemployment more directly.[56] Just after the bill was enacted, Krugman wrote that the stimulus was too small to deal with the problem, adding, "And it's widely believed that political considerations led to a plan that was weaker and contains more tax cuts than it should have — that Mr. Obama compromised in advance in the hope of gaining broad bipartisan support."[57] Conservative economist John Lott was more critical of the government spending.[58] On January 28, 2009, a full-page advertisement with the names of approximately 200 economists who were against Obama's plan appeared in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. The economists denied the quoted statement by President Obama that there was "no disagreement that we need action by our government, a recovery plan that will help to jumpstart the economy". Instead, the signers believed that "to improve the economy, policymakers should focus on reforms that remove impediments to work, saving, investment and production. Lower tax rates and a reduction in the burden of government are the best ways of using fiscal policy to boost growth."[59] The funding for this advertisement came from the Cato Institute.[60] On February 8, 2009, a letter to Congress signed by about 200 economists in favor of the stimulus, written by the Center for American Progress Action Fund, said that Obama's plan "proposes important investments that can start to overcome the nation's damaging loss of jobs", and would "put the United States back onto a sustainable long-term-growth path".[61] This letter was signed by Nobel Memorial laureates Kenneth Arrow, Lawrence R. Klein, Eric Maskin, Daniel McFadden, Paul Samuelson and Robert Solow. The New York Times published projections from IHS Global Insight, Moody's.com, Economy.com and Macroeconomic Advisers that indicated that the economy may have been worse without the ARRA. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stimulus_Bill_of_2009 Image by Jürgen from Sandesneben, Germany (Flickr) [CC-BY-2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Our top story this morning... The European Central Bank has announced the details of its massive stimulus package,... in a desperate attempt to stop the flagging eurozone shuddering to a halt. The central bank says it′s going to inject roughly one-and-a-quarter TRILLION U.S. dollars into financial markets. Shin Se-min reports. The European Central Bank says it′s going to buy and unprecedented amount of bonds, pumping money into the stagnant eurozone economy. The central bank said Thursday that it′s purchases of government and private-sector bonds worth 60 billion euros,... or roughly 68 billion U.S. dollars will begin in March,... and continue through at least September of next year,... or even longer. The total will reach some one-point-three trillion dollars,... MUCH more than the 568 billion dollars initially expected. Speaking in Frankfurt on Thursday, ECB President Mario Draghi said the central bank would also keep eurozone interest rates at zero-point-0-5 percent. The decision comes as the eurozone is showing signs of going into a deflationary spiral. It′s hoped the massive stimulus will improve the bloc′s sluggish exports and channel more investments into stocks. "We wanted to take a decision that would mitigate the concerns that many participating countries in the euro area have about the unintended fiscal consequences of potential developments in the future." The ECB money will also include some existing programs. Countries like Greece and Italy will be included under a bailout program,... but with some additional criteria, as such countries have worse economic conditions. The announcement stunned traders with most markets across Europe posting gains. Stocks on Wall Street also reacted positively. On the currency markets,... the euro slumped to an 11-year low of one-dollar-13 cents against the greenback. Shin Se-min, Arirang News.

Economic Stimulus | Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 http://economicstimulus.org/economic-stimulus-act-of-2008/ One of the main responses to the financial collapse and Great Recession of 2008 was the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), better known as President Obama's stimulus plan. The debate over the law was quite contentious as Republicans, still stung by their defeat during the 2008 election used the new spending in the stimulus law to rally their conservative base. With Democrats in control of the White House and both houses of Congress the Republican opposition was no obstacle so on February 17, 2009, President Obama signed the legislation making it the first major legislation of his administration. Almost immediately the stimulus law became a political lightening rod and both parties developed their positions as far as the stimulus was concerned. Democrats played up the fact that the ARRA was passed to jump start the economy and create jobs and Republicans positioned themselves against the $800 billion added to the national debt and used the stimulus as a rallying cry headed into the 2012 midterms. The primary objective of the ARRA was to save and create jobs immediately at a time when the US economy was losing over 700,000 jobs per month. A secondary goal was to invest in programs that had gone unfunded like infrastructure, green energy, health and education. Specifically, the Act included increased spending for infrastructure projects, education, health, and energy. It also included federal tax incentives, an expansion of unemployment benefits and other social welfare programs. Since we are talking about Congress the Act also included many spending programs that were more long term and had very little to do with immediate jobs growth. The ARRA was based on the Keynesian economic principles that most Democrats subscribe to. This economic philosophy says that in times of recession or other economic peril it is the governments job to spend money to make up for the lack of spending in the private sector. When the government does this the increased federal spending keeps the economy going until the private sector can get back on its feet. The philosophy even goes as far as saying that the government should make work with the famous story that the government should hire workers to dig a hole and then hire them to fill it up again just to generate economic activity. Some very liberal economists actually complained that the Act was not Keynesian enough and didn't spend enough money to make a difference. When the bill passed Congress and was signed by the President it immediately went into effect. The cost of the Act included both new spending and the cost of tax cuts and breaks. On the spending side, the Act cost roughly $550 billion with most of the money going to new infrastructure (what President Obama called "shovel-ready" jobs), aid to low income individuals and the unemployed. Education spending including the No Child Left Behind program, energy incentives like subsidizes for homeowners who weatherized their homes and healthcare, especially an infusion of money into the COBRA program for unemployed Americans. On the tax side there were numerous new tax credits, a $250 payout to Social Security recipients, expanded earned income tax credits, college tuitions credits, homebuyer credits, home energy credits and expanded child credits. The total cost of the tax adjustments was roughly $250 billion. The long term impact of the stimulus is hard to determine. The President argues it saved the country from another Great Depression while Republicans argue it added almost a trillion dollars to the deficit and unemployment still hovers near 8% meaning that if the main goal of the stimulus was to save and create jobs it was a failure. Politically both sides continue to use the stimulus against each other and the fact that it's impact is hard to determine means that both sides have an argument to make.
