Wait! It get's even Better!!!

This is getting out of control... It's SO BAD even the media has "decided" to cover it. God what next? Oh yeah, more wars and corruption in Pakistan and Afghanistan to keep the looting of the country in place so they can be forced to "do more" since we'll have less. (Or in this case actually NOTHING!!!)

Taxes?

So are they collecting taxes in these fairytale districts? Wouldn't that be a form of money laundering?

ABC News Exclusive: Obama Slashed 60,000 Stimulus Jobs

ABC News Exclusive: Obama Admin Slashed 60,000 Jobs From Recent Stimulus Report
Office of Management & Budget Document: 12 Stimulus Recipients Reported 'Unrealistic Job Data'
By MATTHEW JAFFE
Nov. 16, 2009

The Obama administration, under fire for inflating job growth from the $787 billion stimulus plan, slashed over 60,000 jobs from its most recent report on the program because the reporting outlets had submitted "unrealistic data," according to a document obtained by ABC News.

The Office of Management and Budget document shows that before an Oct. 30 progress report on the program the administration asked the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board to remove information from 12 stimulus recipients that contained "unrealistic data," including "unrealistic job data." (Read the document here.)

One recipient – Talladega County of Alabama – claimed that 5,000 jobs had been saved or created from only $42,000 in stimulus funds.

"The administration committed from the start to be upfront with the American people about the impact of the Recovery Act. Overall, the recipients provided good information on the impact of the Recovery Act across the country," Rob Nabors, deputy director at OMB, told ABC News Monday. "The test that we used when examining the data for accuracy was, 'Is that reasonable?' When the answer was no, we acted accordingly."

"For instance," Nabors noted, "there is little chance that a $42,000 grant actually created 5,000 jobs, and we did not want that count to be part of the final jobs report. We are continuing to examine data for inconsistencies or errors, whether small or large. Given the unprecedented nature of this reporting effort, these are cautious, responsible steps to ensure that the information provided to the American people is accurate and reliable."

Some of the other recipients whose data was omitted included Belmont Metropolitan Housing Authority in Ohio that reported 16,120 jobs saved or created after receiving $1.3 million in stimulus funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Shelton State Community College in Alabama reported 14,500 jobs saved or created after receiving $27,000 from the General Accounting Office. And Alkan Builders of Alaska reported 3,000 jobs saved or created after receiving $11 million from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Is that info still up?

Anybody got screen shots or mirrors to document this?
I'm sure they're going to try and take the info down, change it and deny it if they haven't done so already

poq: see my post above.

I copy more than usual these days for the very same reason you say.

I don't know what will disappear and what will remain.

If this is a nightmare, I want to wake up and NOT be able to read this stuff later. So far, this is a true nightmare.

I hear ya

This is a nightmare. I need a pinch though. There's a lot of abc links, but I can't find anything on the recovery.gov site.

Anybody find any of these figures or fictional districts there? Is this legit? Or has the gov already begun to take them down to cover their tracks. What facts can we validate?

ABC has been the same as Obama-speak....

up to now. They have a lot of access to the White House.

Why is ABC now slamming the administration?
I know that NBC is being taken over by ComCast, but what gives with ABC? Why are they now reporting the news?

http://www.dailypaul.com/node/114685

Either they radically changed formats or this is BS

I can't find that information anywhere on the recovery.gov site. Not even a breakdown by congressional district.

Time to kick Washington,

Time to kick Washington, D.C. out of the Union.

I second

that motion

Miamisburg, Montgomery County, Ohio

Maybe some of those congressional districts...

are in those extra 7 states that Obama said he'd visited (I've been to 57 states so far...)

They are not even trying to hide their crimes anymore!

They throw their crimes in our faces with impunity, and laugh while we weep from our loss of liberty. If there is a place where the Gods will punish, they will surely be a large and sorry lot on that day.

This makes me sleepy

I think I'll call in sick to work tomorrow. We're getting robbed by imbeciles who are too gorged on tax money to even care. What's the point?

C'mon! There not even trying anymore

$47.7 million spent and 291 jobs created in Puerto Rico's 99th Congressional District?!?! Seriously, the 99th district?

With all the money they're siphoning off us I expect much higher quality scamming! This is an outrage! They better distract us with something quick or I will be very disappointed.

ohhh shoot

I was just about to change that "there" to "they're" ;(
I'm not sure if you were being subtle or not with that "They are". If you were, brilliant, and very kind of you not to call it out. lol

Oops. Sorry, poq.

Lol. Actually, I didn't even catch it.

No biggie, though, on the boo-boo. I accidentally typed "to" the other day where I meant "too". Happens to the best of us. ;)

lol, posted to facebook.
