How many jobs has President Obama’s stimulus package created?
No one knows. And that’s a major problem.
The Obama Administration recently launched a website at www.recovery.gov to track stimulus spending, fraud, and abuse, but unfortunately the website seems to be its very own worst offender. It reports millions of dollars spent to create jobs in congressional districts that do not exist.
Yes. Fake jobs in fake districts.
In South Carolina alone, the website reports spending $40 million to create 155 jobs in our 16th, 43rd, 45th 32nd, and 12th districts. The problem is South Carolina only has 6 congressional districts.
Somehow, $1.8 million was even spent for 1.4 jobs in district 00 and $3 million couldn’t even produce a single job in South Carolina’s 43rd imaginary Congressional District.
This would all be funny if we weren’t talking about the biggest expansion of government in decades and real jobs for American families who need to get back on their feet. American taxpayers deserve to know where their hard-earned dollars are being spent.
After several days of reports of stimulus inconsistencies, the Administration still hasn’t explained where the money is really being spent.
That’s why I’ve asked the President to establish a panel to audit stimulus spending and to report back on how the Administration can prevent fraud, waste, and abuse.
On Monday morning I will hold a press conference where I will present the names of American taxpayers who stand with me in this fight.
If so, please click here today and I’ll add your name to the list of American’s demanding answers and I’ll present it at Monday’s press conference.
We can’t let this kind of abuse with our tax dollars keep happening.
