Obama Stimulus … Part of $11M Stimulus Grant for Detroit Low Income Job Seekers Helped Just Two Individuals
Barack Obama’s stimulus plan is brought to you today by the #2 …
More from the files of the failed Barack Obama $787 billion stimulus … $11 million grant was supposed to help 400 low income job seekers in Detroit, MI ... the end result, it helped just 2 people. Isn’t this just a perfect example and a microcosm of the failed Obama stimulus and wasted tax payer dollars?
Part of an $11 million grant intended to provide business attire to 400 low-income job-seekers instead helped only two people, an audit of the city’s Department of Human Services has found.
The audit, conducted by the city’s auditor general for the period from July 2009 to September 2011, found the department failed to control the operations and finances of a boutique that was to provide the clothes.
The department did not safeguard grant funds or create an inventory for the clothing, the audit found.
Among the most telling findings, which will be discussed today during a City Council committee meeting, is that a third-party contractor advanced $148,000 to a downtown Detroit clothing store and opened an account, but did not include the city on the account.
As we are reminded at Michelle Malkin, Obama but VP Joe Biden in control of being responsible of implementing the Obama stimulus. Great job Joe!
“You guys know that when the president gave me the responsibility of dealing with and implementing this recovery act, he called me Sheriff Joe. Well, I’ve still got my badge on.” – Joe Biden, April 6, 2010.
And to make matters worse, if possible, as pointed out by the Ace of Spades who made up this plan? Forget the fact that only two people were helped, if 400 had been as initially thought that would have been $27,500 per person. Who dreamed this up and worse, who said, great idea … give them money, that’s money well spent!
This is what happens when government spends other people’s money. What a waste. There best be a GOP ad being developed this very second putting all of the wasted stimulus projects in a politcal ad reminding America just how much of a colossal waste it was and that they will be paying for this Obama gaffe for generations to come. Remember that in the 2012 election.
