Cost of an Obama Job is...

In his Special Order Speech today Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) noted that if Obama "created" four million jobs with a $800 bil "Stimulus Package" that would amount to an expense of $200,000 per job. Put another way, McClintock pointed out that the feds could give $100,000 checks to each of those four million people and reduce the cost of the stimulus package by half.

True, there's more to the stimulus package than just the welfare (pun intended) of Americans (or illegal aliens) who would get a job out of this, but to say this bill is anything less than one of our nation's greatest fiascos is an understatement. Never before has an "earmark-less" bill been stuffed with so much pork.
