Obama said this during his State of the Union speech:
"because of the steps we took, there are about two million Americans working right now who would otherwise be unemployed."
Meanwhile at recovery.gov, we see this as the job tally:
Recovery Funded Job
Reported by Recipients
October 1 - December 31, 2009
Job calculations are based on
the number of hours worked in a quarter
and funded under the Recovery Act.
That my friends, is Obama math!
