From the NY Post:
So many billions out the door — and nary a clue about what Americans got in return.
That’s the tragic-but-too-true story of last February’s $787 billion federal stimulus program — the first major legislative package out of Washington after the Democrats took control of the city.
What a monumental waste.
The Obama folks claim that, as of Oct. 30, stimulus funds “created or saved” 640,329 jobs. They might as well claim 640 billion.
The truth? No one really knows if the package “created or saved” any jobs.
And that’s now crystal clear, after reporters checked out the Obama team’s claims.
ABC News, for example, reported last week that many of the supposedly saved or created jobs were located in congressional districts that, well . . . don’t exist.
The administration blames “human error” — local officials who supposedly misreported their district locations.
And no one (yet, anyway) is saying the money went south; surely someone will one day figure out what happened to more than three-quarters of a trillion dollars in taxpayer cash.
