Say No Way, Say No Way...YA!
The Ragister provided the White House guestimates of the impact on Iowa of The American Jobs Act (AJA), or Stimulus lite.
Obama jobs plan would provide millions for Iowa roads, teachers, schools, White House says
The only jobs numbers were --
An estimated $385.9 million for Iowa highway and transit modernization projects, supporting a “minimum of 5,000 local jobs.”
$132.6 million to modernize Iowa’s schools, an effort that would support as many as 1,700 jobs.
The Obama administration has gone from jobs created or saved to supporting(?) jobs.
We all support jobs, and the scientific community is united in that fact, we just can't afford this phony jobs plan.
the overall AJA plan will cost $250,000 per job created (excluding the interest expense) and $312,500 per union job, er job created (including interest).
I won't pay, I won't pay...YA!
