House Speaker John Boehner says Obama's economists figure stimulus cost at $278,000 per job<quoted text>
For every job his stimulus created, it cost the taxpayers $278,000 per job. Not exactly the kind of job stimulus we were anticipating. These people weren't making $278,000 but Obama somehow created a unique class of 1%'ers - for taxpayers.
So basically, his stimulus failed and, right behind it, Obamacare made sure the job crisis continued and served as a catalyst for a stagnant and snail-crawling slow recovery of the economy.
It's a no-win combination for Obama any way you look at it.
The White House points out that Recovery Act dollars didnít just fund salaries - as the blog item implies - it also funded numerous capital improvements and infrastructure projects.
Lumping all costs together and classifying it as salaries produces an inflated figure.
