Amount of money in stimulus package:$787,000,000,000.
Dollars spent by government for each job saved: $26,160,955.
Good lord, does it really take the government 26 million of our tax dollars to save a job?
P.S. – That’s not the only news, though. The real surprise in this story is that the Vice President has his very own chief economist! WTF?
UPDATE: Michigan pathetically creates 397 jobs from spending $620 million. Still, that’s only $1.5 million per person, which is much better than the national average.
