Props to Dave Price for his report on WHO-TV.

 

$875 million has been spent on his I-Jobs.  He says that between 7000-9000 jobs have been created.  That would be $97,222 on the high end of that number and $125,000 on the low end for each job he’s says he’s created… he just can’t show you where and exactly how many.  One thing that is clear that since these jobs are construction based they are temporary at best, and so it doesn’t provide a long-term solution.  To top all of this spending off, our unemployment rate stays the same after peaking in April.   This program has been a miserable failure, but sure let’s blame it on the weather.  I’m sure that’ll work on voters in November.
