Saved Or Created

Heh.

President Barack Obama’s economic recovery program saved 935 jobs at the Southwest Georgia Community Action Council, an impressive success story for the stimulus plan. Trouble is, only 508 people work there.

The Georgia nonprofit’s inflated job count is among persisting errors in the government’s latest effort to measure the effect of the $787 billion stimulus plan despite White House promises last week that the new data would undergo an “extensive review” to root out errors discovered in an earlier report.

    I’m sure they’ll get to the bottom of this and real quick, cause it’s all computerized now, thanks to Senator Obama and others back in 2006. In fact this is where Obama first got on the radar with voters. 🙂

    The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (S. 2590)[2] is an Act of Congress that requires the full disclosure to the public of all entities or organizations receiving federal funds beginning in fiscal year (FY) 2007. The website USAspending.gov opened in December 2007 as a result of the act, and is maintained by the Office of Management and Budget. The Congressional Budget Office estimates S. 2590 will cost $15 million over its authorized time period of 2007–2011.[3]

    What products does the Southwest Georgia Community Action Council produce? I’d like to support them but I need to know what kind of goods they manufacture so I can do my shopping from them and do my part to help the economy.

    • Kellie,
      They (those that support BushObamanomics) don’t understand that you stayed in business “in spite” of their policies, not “because of” or “due to” their policies.
