Obama--Stimulus "saved" 650,000 or maybe even 1 million jobs
Remember when they said the stimulus saved 1 million jobs?
Now it's 650,000.
Anyone remember why?
Separately, the White House had to contend with new reports Thursday showing that 30,000 jobs have been directly created or saved by contractors who received money from the $787 billion stimulus package for infrastructure and social programs.
But don't let the facts get involved in a good spin!
So we have 650,000 jobs "saved" from $150 billion spent--or $231,000 per job. Or we have 30,000 jobs created from $150 billion spent, or $5 million per job.
That's Goldman Sachs math.
Sometimes, the fantasy is always better than real life.
Because now, we have the real Obama girl.
I liked the pretend one better!
She sold Hope better!
