Jake Tapper managed to figure out that $160 billion divided by 1 million “created or saved” jobs equals $160,000 per job.
The White House is so shocked at Jake’s finding, they acuse him of calculator abuse.
As if one needed a calculator to figure that one. Of course, it’s abuse because Jake isn’t buying the White House line.
But wait, the folks at the White House DO need a calculator:
Jared Bernstein, chief economist and senior economic advisor to the vice president, called that “calculator abuse.”
He said the cost per job was actually $92,000
See! That makes it all right!
Excuse me know for a moment. I need to go “save or create” some housecleaning and laundry.
