We've a couple Web sites to which to refer you today. Both are involved in tracking the federal- government stimulus program, which means they are either examples of profligate waste or govern ment's role in bringing a staggering private economy back to health.

The cost-per-job from receipt of stimulus cash in Pennsylvania has so far been $57,708.

This explaination to why the costs per employee seen high is basic common sense and it's no wonder common sense answers give Republicans such trouble understanding.

When saving or adding new jobs building or fixing infastructure like bridges, you not only need workers you also need concrete, steel beams and many other materials that are included into the $57,708 costs per employee.

Why are Republicans so stupid ? Or is it just more Republican lies and deceit instead of truthful answers ?

Obama's gonna kill Grandma and after that he's coming for your guns. So says the Republican Party !!!!

There is not an economist on Earth who has a forumula that can provide a reliable statistical model for "saving a job" as a function of an economy. Stop reading from the talking points and crack open an Econ 101 textbook.

I don't believe lives are ever saved. Lives are prolonged. Maybe jobs are the same way?

The cost of prolonging a life can become very expensive and frequently fails. Can we say the same about jobs?
