If it weren’t bad enough that taxpayers shelled out over five million dollars to “save or create” one-tenth of one job in Orange, Virginia, it turns out that we’ve been funneling money to zip codes in Virginia that don’t even exist, according to the Old Dominion Watchdog. The “stimulus” program has clearly devolved into a slush fund for priorities of the Democratic Party where massive amounts of taxpayer dollars are wasted, at best, and we borrow money we cannot afford to repay from countries that clearly don’t have our best interests at heart. As the mind-boggling fraud and abuse continues to be revealed, voters increasingly are getting disgusted with Congress and this administration.
In our neck of the woods, here are the “impressive” results all this new debt has brought us according to Recovery.org:
Zip code 20109: Spent: $1.5 million Jobs “created or saved:” Zero
Zip code 20110: Spent: $22.5 million Jobs “created or saved:” 15.6
Zip code 20111: Spent: $1.3 million Jobs “created or saved:” Zero
Zip code 20112: Spent: $36.5 million Jobs “created or saved:” Zero
So in this local area, government borrowed over $60 million dollars that our children will have to repay in order to “create or save” precisely 15.6 jobs at a rough cost of $3.8 million dollars each. Wow, that’s some government efficiency for you. I can really see how the injection of such a huge amount of money into our local economy has really turned things around and we’re enjoying boom times once again.
How freakin’ ridiculous can you get.
