Job Creation Booms in Fake Congressional Districts

The government that can’t even run Recovery.gov is the same government asking to be put in charge of health care. News reports are now gushing out of many sources about how stimulus jobs are overstated and now millions of dollars are allegedly being spent in non-existent congressional districts.

Report from the DC Examiner:

President Obama is claiming success through his $787 billion stimulus package by way of the administration’s website recovery.gov. Visitors to the website will find that hundreds of jobs have been created or saved all across the country. Here are some of the statistics reported by recovery.gov:

• $34 million in stimulus money has been spent in Arizona’s 86th congressional district in a project for the Navajo Housing authority, which is actually located in the 1st congressional district.
• In Oklahoma, recovery.gov lists more than $19 million in spending — and 15 jobs created.
• In Iowa, it shows $10.6 million spent – and 39 jobs created.
• In Connecticut’s 42nd district, the Web site claims 25 jobs created with zero stimulus dollars.

The problem is these districts do not exist.

It doesn’t stop there, we’re taking this embarrassment on the road:

The list of spending and job creation in fictional congressional districts goes beyond just the 50 states. Stimulus money and job creation and saving extend to U.S. territories as well. Here is what territories outside the U.S, have received from tax payers:

• $68.3 million spent and 72.2 million spent in the 1st congressional district of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
• $8.4 million spent and 40.3 jobs created in the 99th congressional district of the U.S. Virgin Islands.
• $1.5 million spent and .3 jobs created in the 69th district and $35 million for 142 jobs in the 99th district of the Northern Mariana Islands.
• $47.7 million spent and 291 jobs created in Puerto Rico’s 99th congressional district.

With reports like this, we know that the jobs numbers coming from the Obama administration cannot and should not be trusted. Recovery.gov, which cost $18 million by the way, was setup specifically to track the failing Obama stimulus plan yet it is riddled with errors.

My question in all this is where has the hundreds of millions of dollars gone that was allegedly spent in these non-existent districts? Is it a total sham, are the numbers being made up including jobs and the amount spent? Or, perhaps, are the dollars being spent, just not for jobs?

The Examiner also put together this handy map of fraudulent job claims around the country:

It is a joke to think that a government which cannot even orchestrate giving away taxpayer money for free could operate our health care industry. The evidence mounts on a daily basis as to why we need to fight for our personal freedoms against this incompetence.

Here’s a good flashback when President Obama was arguing vehemently for his stimulus plan to spur economic growth and create jobs.

Skepticism? Ya think? 49 states have lost jobs despite your failed stimulus plan. Many of us knew it was a sham from the beginning and now we have the data to prove it.

Maybe this has something to do with it:

Uncle Joe will always be good for a chuckle.

    Well before beginning on this article, will discuss top news for today. Eric Holden nearly admits detainee trials in New York is trial against Bush when talking to Congressional hearing today. The head of the snake was water bordered numerous, numerous times.

    They won’t discuss information gained. Can’t. They won’t discuss Congressional approval. Too sensitive. Headline in all but Fox… ‘Tortured detainee, under Bush administration, has case dismissal by Judge. Ordered released.’

    You think obama will then have military trial ? Never !!! He won Nobel Peace Prize. Not politically correct.

    Is this possible ??? Absolutely …

    Why do I say this. How could I ? Simple. Water bordered detainee would plead guilty in military trial. Eric Holden said basically he will decide how this Terrorist goes to trial. Don’t believe Eric said Terrorist. If fact I’m sure.

    Need I say more…

    Second biggest news today, Sarah Palin book went on sale today. Already best seller. On Hannity show now.

    I hope her book out sells all of obama’s books put together.

    Wouldn’t that bury a needle deep in a liberals behind ???

    I already have a topic to write after this. Busy day.

    I don’t go to Recovery.gov. We have a dishonest administration and administration runs this site. Daddy taught me to stay away from evil. How can we not think of Acorn and this site.

    Shows why there are so called ‘Birthers’ out there. There are solid reasons all over not to believe obama. Without solid proof nothing coming out of his mouth is believable. Without solid proof I’m not sure where he was born. Lies seem to implode upon this man.

    Nate wrote “Recovery.gov, which cost $18 million by the way.” That clicked a memory in my head. Nate if you are interested I believe the overpaid developer of this site is dirty. I remember something just can’t recall it.

    Sorry Nate, you made mistake… Not your fault. These guys are experts. At covering their asses.

    WHERE ARE THE JOBS

    What a lady.

    Rep. Brown-Waite (R) Says 18 million update. To update. Not total cost. She showed original contract. BLACKED OUT. YES. BLACK OUT.

    5 JOBS GUYS. 5 GUYS. 5 GUYS.

    She is investigating.

    I feel another Watergate coming. And Rep. Brown-Waite (R) has seen the flashlights across the street in the Watergate building…

    Committee hearing. Bad day for Holder.

    Holder had a bad day yesterday. He forgot and said terrorist instead of ‘man caused disaster’. I hope obama does not hear about it. Then again he might just bow to Holder. What do you think ?

    “a perversion of justice” by putting wartime enemies into the civilian criminal justice system. “We’re making history, and we’re making bad history,”

    Sen Lindsey Grahan

    Graham thinks Holder is making mistake having trial for war times enemies this away. Seems it will to be a first. Humm. Sen Lindsey Grahan put the fear in the Attoney General.

    Seems like our lands head lawyer should know things like that. I thought lawyers studied through law books when they wanted to know something. Think the reial will continue ? Maybe this is political.
