The California papers have done some investigation. While that in and of itself is headline news, what they found is also interesting. $268,000,000 was spent on teacher's jobs across the state. They (the government) have said that this saved more than 25,000 jobs. Let's forget for a second how much money we are spending per job, a closer examination of the so-called saved jobs finds that more than 1/4 of them were never in any danger.
Just tell us the truth. Where is this money going and how is it affecting the everyday person? If this is the formula for all the stimulus spending we are in deep trouble. The money is being wasted and the government continues to lie and is working over-time to cover it up. Where is the transparency and the accountability that we were promised? What about broke doesn't this administration not understand?
Hat tip to the California papers for looking into this. It is refreshing to hear that the lame stream media is actually doing its job.
