Obama Job Recovery: $111 Million in Stimulus under American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Creates 55 Jobs in Los Angeles
Is it any wonder why the Tea Party is an overwhelmingsuccess … Democrats would have you believe it is extreme to be against Government wasteful spending.
The Obama Administration likes to tout the $787 billion stimulus plan as a success and job creator, really? Does any one think that spending $2 million per job is a success? That is correct, $2,000,000 per job. After receiving $111 million in Obama’s federal stimulus funds, the city of Los Angeles, CA created a whopping 55 jobs.
The city received $111 million in stimulus under American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) approved by the Congress more than year ago.
“I’m disappointed that we’ve only created or retained 55 jobs after receiving $111 million,” says Wendy Greuel, the city’s controller, while releasing an audit report.
“With our local unemployment rate over 12% we need to do a better job cutting red tape and putting Angelenos back to work,” she added.
According to the report, the Los Angeles Department of Public Works generated only 45.46 jobs (the fraction of a job created or retained correlates to the number of actual hours of work) after receiving $70.65 million, while the target was 238 jobs.
Similarly, the city’s department of transportation, armed with a $40.8 million fund, created only 9 jobs in place of an expected 26 jobs.
These are the type of numbers that are the reality of the wasted tax payers money and the mortgaging of out grand children’sfutures. The Obama stimulus has been a complete disaster. It is exactly this type of poor handling of the economy why Obama and Democrats need to be thrown out of office in 2010 and 2012. Imagine Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid telling America that he was not at all responsible for the poor economy. Who do you think helped pass Obama’s $787 billion stimulus folly? And it will be Reid’s “self-proclaimed pet” Chris Coons who will continues to be a rubber stamp for Reid and Obama if he is elected in Delaware.
Want to continue this ridiculous cherade of incomepetence and the ruining of the America econeomy, by all means vote for a self proclaimed Marxist like Chris Coons. Because voting a Marxist into the Senate is just what America needs. It has worked so well for the United States when one was elected President.
Democratic senatorial candidate Chris Coons is a self-professed Marxist.
The Politico reported, via FOX Nation:
An article Democrat Chris Coons wrote for his college newspaper may not go over so well in corporation-friendly Delaware, where he already faces an uphill battle for Vice President Joe Biden’s old Senate seat.
The title? “Chris Coons: The Making of a Bearded Marxist.”
In the article, Coons, then 21 years old and about to graduate from Amherst College, chronicled his transformation from a sheltered, conservative-minded college student who had worked for former GOP Delaware Sen. William Roth and had campaigned for Ronald Reagan in 1980 into a cynical young adult who was distrustful of American power and willing to question the American notion of free enterprise.
