The Stimulus Exaggerations Keep Piling Up

Last week, I noted that the claims of the Obama Administration regarding the effectiveness of the stimulus on job creation are simply made up numbers with no semblance to reality.  Today, The New York Times-owned Boston Globe chimes in:

While Massachusetts recipients of federal stimulus money collectively report 12,374 jobs saved or created, a Globe review shows that number is wildly exaggerated. Organizations that received stimulus money miscounted jobs, filed erroneous figures, or claimed jobs for work that has not yet started.

I’m shocked, SHOCKED to find that recipients of federal stimulus money lied and made mistakes that inflated their effectiveness.  I’m equally shocked that there were no mistakes that showed a reduced impact of the stimulus.
