Fox & Friends also forwarded the attack that because the current unemployment rate is higher than initial Obama administration predictions, the stimulus is failing.

As Media Matters for America has noted, supporters of a stimulus bill had warned before it was passed that it would not result in an immediate decrease in unemployment.
