Jammie has the story, from the New York Times.
Oh, yes, the Times:
STIMULUS WATCH: Weatherizing Program Falling Short (emphasis adeed)
After a year of crippling delays, President Barack Obama’s $5 billion program to install weather-tight windows and doors has retrofitted a fraction of homes and created far fewer construction jobs than expected.
In Indiana, state-trained workers flubbed insulation jobs. In Alaska, Wyoming and the District of Columbia, the program has yet to produce a single job or retrofit one home. And in California, a state with nearly 37 million residents, the program at last count had created 84 jobs.
If you divide $5 billion by 84, it comes to $59,523,809.50 per job.
These government people. They can sure run a program effectively.
And now they’re in charge of your healthcare.
