OVER HALF OF AMERICANS DON'T THINK STIMULUS IS WORKING

ABC News - Six months after President Obama launched a $787 billion plan to right the nation's economy, a majority of Americans think the avalanche of new federal aid has cost too much and done too little to end the recession. . . . A USA Today/Gallup Poll found 57% of adults say the stimulus package is having no impact on the economy or making it worse. Even more - 60% - doubt that the stimulus plan will help the economy in the years ahead, and only 18% say it has done anything to help improve their personal situation.
