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.

      I wonder in whose pocket this money ended up?

      There needs to be an in depth investigation and audit for all of these “stimulus” fund dollars.

      For all you social/democrats out there: The federal government or any government for that matter DOES NOT create jobs. Government is a consumer of wealth. Businesses create jobs.

      Obama got it wrong on day one, two, three, ect, ect. What a waste!

      Notice that any and all jobs created are
      GOVMENT jobs that do not produce a
      single dime of value. When we all are
      ‘workin’ for the govment, we will truly
      be the new modern slaves. And, with
      NO new value being created, our new lives
      as slaves to the royal govment will force us
      all to be subsisting at the poverty line or

      You state: “That is correct, $2,000,000 per job”.

      Only an f***ing idiot really thinks that this money ONLY pays for labor. If the job is to build a road, the ROAD requires material and machines to be used. Guess what; they cost money too!

      Are you that stupid to not understand such basic ideas? You should be ashamed of spreading such lies.

      I dare you to let my facts be posted. Your decision will say a great deal about your character and beliefs. I hope I’m wrong.
      SM: To borrow a word from your post above, fo an “F” yourself. The stimulus money was to go to create jobs. You dumbass, if roads were built tehn those jobs would be created as well.

      Awe, did we hit too close to home and expose the waste and corruption of Obama’s trillion dollar stimulus plan? Did we ruffle your feathers.

      The fact of the matter is and the truth is that the Obama stimulus plan was a pay off to Democrats and did not create jobs. That is why unemployment rose. This was not a jobs bill and every one recognizes it. This President is much like yourself, an idiotic foll who has no concept how to or even the want to create jobs. Obama wants to create a dependent porr, welfare class of people dependent on government for their health care, jos and pay check.

      Now that I was posted your dribble, consider yourself banned. Seeing that you cannt behave in a respectful manner while on anothers web site like every idiot troll moonbat, adios. Like I need you to define me about my character. Please. You typical POS liberal who try to define others because you think you are so much better than every one else. Say good by you fool.

      To the brain surgeon from #5 above.

      Here is more examples of wasted tax payer $’s and teh failed Obama stimulus trillions:


      A new report from Republican senators Tom Coburn and John McCain says too much of the $862 billion in stimulus money is being spent with dubious results: $700,000 for a researcher to study improvised music. For a project on interactive dance, 44 percent of the money goes to “overhead.”

      The $1.9 million spent to photograph ants in foreign countries has created two jobs created so far. That’s better than other ant research stimulus projects: $451,000 has created one job, $276,000 spent on another created six one-hundredths of a job, and the $800,000 spent on a different one created no jobs.

      The $144,000 spent to study the behavior of monkeys on cocaine created four-tenths of a job.

      Check out the list of waste from the report:
      Review it and then lets see of your hard earned tax $’s and money borrowed from your children’s and grandchildren’s futures is worth it.

      as i just said earlier, democrats are stupid redneck white trash or either thug minoroties, or
      illegal aliens. the post from #5 is proof on paper.

      #5- Get real, Troll. Why don’t you actually do some research in my home State of Massachusetts and see what kind of “jobs” Obama’s fake ass stimulus brought this State. Less than 1,000. Gee, what an accomplishment. NOT

      While there were some grants for Education that were a positive—-here….in one of the most prosperous States in our Nation—people are hurting for JOBS.

      The Mom and Pop companies are closing shop left and right, and even some of the biggest employers (IBM & Genzyme) have cut back or done massive “re-organizations” which is just a fancy word for employees being laid off. They are not giving them the generous severance packages like they did after the dot.com bubble burst in the early 2000′s. It’s Adios Baby, and you are on your own.

      As usual, you are just another liberal troll who talks out of your arse. Check your facts before you come on here and spew your rhetoric.

      America is changing right before your very eyes and you can piss and moan all you want—the shift is going towards the Moderate/Right/Middle Independent voters and they have had enough. I personally know of hundreds of such folk who WILL NOT BE VOTING TO RE-ELECT your boy Obama the second time around. Those here who were fooled in to voting for him are gravely disappointed and feel as if they were duped. Buyers remorse is putting it gently. They are mad as hell and will show up at the polls to have their voice heard. Remember a Senator named Scott Brown? What does that tell you, you Libtard?

      Even in this State which bleeds bright blue, the talk is that we are struggling as well along with millions of others across our great Country.

      It’s about the ECONOMY,Stupid and obviously- you don’t have a fricken clue what you are talking about.

      yes #5: he would have done better just to give 111 people a million dollars each. that would have at least boosted the economy.
      what obama has done so far is merely steal this money for pork projects like spend ing a million dollars on research to teach african males how to wash their genitals after sex.
      this was actually news last week and i’m appalled that this was actually done by our government. this money is being stolen by the obama administration by the millions. parties, trips to spain for his wife and kids, vacations every month, rappers and the weakling Paul Mcfartney, dance exhibitions. all wasted money by your boy.
