Obama's stimulus worked

Barack Obama

Tom Schaller in his column "GOP just can't say yes to President Obama" (Aug 7) is correct in describing the president's stimulus program as a resounding success that revived the economy after the disastrous Bush recession and avoided the nation falling into a full blown depression.

As a past vice chairman of the American Road and Transportation Builders Association, I clearly recall how the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 kept the highway construction industry, including contractors, engineers, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, afloat and in business for quite a number of years, and avoided laying off millions of workers.
