The Daily Quote

"CBO estimates that in the fourth quarter of calendar year 2009, [the Recovery Act] added between 1.0 million and 2.1 million to the number of workers employed in the United States…. CBO also estimates that real (inflation-adjusted) gross domestic product (GDP) was 1.5 percent to 3.5 percent higher in the fourth quarter than would have been the case in the absence of ARRA.”
