Obama's new math for "counting" stimulus jobs
First it was jobs "created."
Then it was jobs "saved."
Now its jobs "funded."

Which means that any stimulus money used to cover payroll, including pay raises for existing people, and pay for people whose job never was in jeopardy, will now be counted as jobs.
All of which led Rep. Darrell Issa, of the House Oversight Committee Issa to send this letter:
"It is troubling that the administration is changing the rules and further inflating the Recovery Act's impact and masking the failure of the stimulus to produce sustainable economic growth or real job creation,"
