Outsourcing billions of taxpayer dollars through stimulus spending « Wintery Knight The So-Called Stimulus Bill So where exactly does $800,000,000,000 go? Surely some of that must have found its way back into the pockets of the people who are responsible for paying it – the American citizen. . Whether the Obama administration intended for the stimulus to be a job-creating measure or an "investment" in pet projects and constituencies, this much is clear: For every $278,000 in taxpayer-funded stimulus money that the administration spent as of the July report, only one job was added or saved. And that's according to an estimate from Obama's own economists. And it has gotten worse from there. Obama’s 2009 economic stimulus spending law–the $787 billion American Recovery and Reivnestment Act–gave millions of federal dollars to foreign companies or funded domestic companies that built factories in foreign countries or bought foreign products. What a guy, screw over the American citizen,you work hard for your money and he gives it all away to foreign countries..
