Take, for example, the pure absurdity of the $70,000,000 spent in Los Angeles to create a whopping 7.76 jobs. That’s right 7 jobs with .76 more. I’m not sure what a .76 job is unless it’s some part time gig at McDonalds.
A new piece of evidence has emerged in the debate over the effectiveness of President Obama’s 2009 stimulus package, and it’s not good for Democrats. According to two newly released audits performed by the Los Angeles controller, L.A. spent enormous portions of the $594 million in stimulus funds it received on projects that created or saved just a handful of jobs. All told, the audits … examined $111 million in stimulus spending by the city’s Department of Transportation and Department of Public Works, and found that the money went to projects that created or retained just 54 jobs. That works out to roughly $2 million per job.
Stupid government. Stupid, stupid, stupid. What a profane and wicked utter waste of taxpayer money. I believe the government wants to kill me. They do things that bring me to the verge of an aneurysm almost every day. I can feel the vein in my forehead pulsating right now. In the words of Fred Sanford, ‘this is the big one…’
We should all be super proud that our elected officials and their appointed lackeys are so willing to throw our money down the toilet.
