    Read the fine print and you discover there is no empirical evidence the stimulus created even one job.

    Agreed..... although we have seen plenty of evidence of millions of jobs being lost. Guess the cost per job just went up.

    How much of that $278,000 went to profits for the owners of the companies that those workers worked for?

    Anybody know?

    The only shovel-ready part of Barry's stimulus was all the bullshit that had to be cleaned up.

    Only Wall Street has benefited from this President and Democrats' terrible failed policies. $278,000 Per Job?? And the people saying this actually work or worked for this President. So you can bet the real number is much worse. Go ahead and double that $278,000 number. What a sad disaster.

    I find it funny how some posts are avoided at all cost by most liberals.

    Jesus. $270,000 per job???

    They would have been much better off just giving the money back to the taxpayers.

    If the money was not stolen and wasted we would prolly be out of the recession by now... Instead we have people trying to credit Obama for "saving the US from a Depression on accident," despite the fact that Obama and all his expert economic advisors didn't even see as a possibility before the stimulus.

    Wall Street is back to getting rich so i guess the Hopey Changey Cult thinks that makes everything just fine. But why is Wall Street making all that cash again? The Hopey Changey Cult should think about that a bit. That doesn't mean average Americans are doing well. Poverty is at record high levels. And paying $278,000 per Job really does hurt. It's very sad.
