The stimulus was watered down by Republicans who insisted a large portion of it go to big business and the rich as tax cuts. They also prevented it from being bigger than was needed. Chunks of money went to the states with no strings attached, and the state governors used it for different things--not necessarily to help the average person.

Whatever success the stimulus had has been squashed by the disappearance of real jobs that pay a living wage (with benefits). Now all you hear about are part-time jobs with no benefits. I don't see the clowns either in Congress or in my state legislature doing a damn thing about the problem other than firing teachers, police, and firefighters. Yeah, that's really going to help the economy.
