The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act: State-By-State Jobs Impact

A staggering 3.6 million American jobs have been lost since this recession began in December 2007 - the culmination of the failed economic approach of the Bush Administration - one that also doubled our national debt in eight short years. The final House-Senate conference agreement of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will create and save 3.5 million jobs, rebuilding America, making us more globally competitive and energy independent, and transforming our economy.

See how many jobs the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will create or save in your state.
