The bill included $789 billion of investments in infrastructure, energy independence, education, and health care.

Republican argued against the bill was excess spending.

Oberstar says Minnesota has reaped the benefits of the jobs created through the legislation.

    I don’t suppose anybody asked real questions, like how many jobs were created, are they temporary, permanent?
    Where are these projects? How big are they?
    Where did our money go? You know, relevant questions.
    I suppose not.

    I’d also like to hear about all those jobs – were they saved or created? What a joke! The money from that stimulus package was used by the current administration to pay off senators and congressmen for votes for Obama’s Health Care fraud.
