So........just to set the record straight, what with the k00ks on this forum talking about how wonderful the Obama 2009 economic stimulus was.......which of course, everybody with half a brain knows is a total load of bullshit, apparently, including his own economists!!! How much money was spent per job for the stimulus? "$278,000.00 per job....and did little if anything to stimulate the economy!!!!!!!" Obama From the article................. The report was written by the White House’s Council of Economic Advisors, a group of three economists who were all handpicked by Obama, and it chronicles the alleged success of the “stimulus” in adding or saving jobs. The council reports that, using “mainstream estimates of economic multipliers for the effects of fiscal stimulus” (which it describes as a “natural way to estimate the effects of” the legislation), the “stimulus” has added or saved just under 2.4 million jobs — whether private or public — at a cost (to date) of $666 billion. That’s a cost to taxpayers of $278,000 per job. In other words, the government could simply have cut a $100,000 check to everyone whose employment was allegedly made possible by the “stimulus,” and taxpayers would have come out $427 billion ahead.
