More Bogus Job Claims From The Obama Ministry Of Misinformation

A follow up to my previous post. The BS keeps flowing from Team Obama with their false jobs claims (sorry I cannot link to the data, the map only allows for displaying the information – I cannot even copy it, I have to retype it).

From California:

Prime Recipient: Jason A Coleman
Amount: $21,843
Jobs Created/Saved: 4
Cost per job: $5,461

This ‘program’ is to search for an “Area of Potential Effect (APE)” for evidence of native american historical sites prior to it being built upon. It includes digging 74 holes with a shovel . This is not 4 jobs created or saved, just a bunch of holes in an APE.

Prime Recipient: American Systems Corp
Amount: $443,182
Jobs Created/Saved: .02
Cost per job: $22,159,100

I have no clue what this means. The reporting is clearly all over the map when $443,182 creates 0.02 jobs and $21,843 creates 4.

Prime Recipient: MGS Construction
Amount: $8,899
Jobs Created/Saved: 1
Cost per job: $8,899

All it says is this is for electrical upgrades. And when this ‘job’ is done is the ‘job’ gone? You betcha ya it is.

Prime Recipient: Enterprise Rental Cars
Amount: $4,250
Jobs Created/Saved: 0
Cost per job: $N/A

Report says they needed a car to run errands. That’s our tax dollars hard at work – running errands.

Prime Recipient: Vanguard Construction (1)
Amount: $1,031,799
Jobs Created/Saved: 12
Cost per job: $85,983

Prime Recipient: Vanguard Construction (2)
Amount: $84,367
Jobs Created/Saved: 7
Cost per job: $12,052

There are numerous projects listed for this one company totaling over $11 million and supposedly creating/saving 129 jobs. Except there is no consistent formula, so who knows.

Prime Recipient: Hal Hays Construction
Amount: $1,036,774
Jobs Created/Saved: 1
Cost per job: $1,036,774

Again, I have no clue how to interpret this one. Seems sometimes it takes a lot of money to save/create a single job, other times ….

Prime Recipient: Raw International
Amount: $6,615
Jobs Created/Saved: 2.41
Cost per job: $2,744

This data is complete garbage. The site stopped working – sort of indicative of the hole Obama administration.

    Wow. I actually know Vanguard Construction. If this is the same California company, they specialize in construction at military bases. They have been doing it for some time, so I really doubt that they hired anyone at all to do stimulus work. The construction business which I am in, is NOT healthy. They are a really good company but this type of work is always out there to bid.

    I poked around the Recovery.gov site and just got disgusted – most reports are precisely what AJ shows above. $1 million dollars to the Podunk Valley community center, Jobs = 2, etc. etc.

    Forget H1N1 – with billions of pure pork being passed out like Halloween candy, the real “swine flu” is the stimulus!

    And the Taxpayers shelled out 24K for every “Cash for Non Clunkers” deal.
