The Obama administration released the bad news that the "stimulous" was a failure on a Friday evening before a holiday when they thought nobody would notice. Each taxpayer funded job cost $270,000. Everyone saw Barry joke about it with the sarcastic comment "the shovel ready jobs weren't shovel ready". Unemployment is "officially" at 9.1% while it is probably way over the magic number of 10%. The lame excuse now is that "it could have been worse" while experts say that the economy would have rebounded quicker without the "stimulous" package causing massive debt and higher energy prices.
