Your Stimulus Tax Dollars at Work
Last month the Obama administration's Council of Economic Advisers released a report claiming the stimulus has created 12,000 jobs in New Hampshire. President Obama put Joe Biden in charge of implementing the stimulus, so the White House numbers should be accurate because "no one messes with Joe".
ButRecovery.gov, the website set up by President Obama allegedly to "root out waste, inefficiency and unnecessary spending in our government" estimates the stimulus has created only 1,432 jobs. On Wednesday, the New Hampshire Office of Economic recovery released its jobs report for the first quarter of 2010 estimating the stimulus created 2,223 jobs to date. So depending on which of these government agencies data you want to work with, each of these job cost us taxpayers between $347,370 and $539.248.
