ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, an economic stimulus bill signed by U.S. President Barack Obama in 2009, and examines various criticisms regarding the impact of the bill on U.S. economic recovery from the recession caused by the global financial crisis of 2008. Particular focus is given to efforts by the Republican Party, specifically during the 2012 presidential campaign of Republican nominee Mitt Romney, to downplay ways in which the Recovery Act has provided economic stability in the U.S. Topics explored within the article include the unemployment rate for American workers, investments from the bill focused on renewable energy industries, and the legacy of the Recovery Act in comparison to the New Deal of the 1930s.
