An audit of federal stimulus spending by the City Controller of Los Angeles reveals -- I hope you're sitting down -- that $111 million in Stimulus spending... saved or created 55 jobs.
The Mayor of Los Angeles appears to be quite proud that he helped destroy 1,200 private sector jobs in order to rescue 55 public sector roles. Libertius, writing at RedState, does the heavy mathematical lifting and calculates:
...New job creation when wealth is left in the private sector: 1269
New job creation when private wealth is seized by the federal government, strained through multiple levels of bureaucratic inefficiency and redistributed by a command-and-control, politically motivated regime: 55
Remember how Joe Biden, former Senator from Delaware, was assigned by the President to prevent fraud in Stimulus spending? I think the term was 'laser-focused'.
Christine O'Donnell, also of Delaware, appears quite appealing compared to this waste, fraud and abuse.
