The Obama administration released a report before the July 4th holiday week-end that showed that each job “added or saved” by the Obama stimulus program cost the taxpayers of America $278,000 per job! And, for what!! The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that the unemployment rate was 7.3% while the “stimulus” was being debated in Congress. Now it is 9.1%…..and Obama promised that it would not go higher than 8% if the stimulus was enacted! When well we learn! If his lips are moving, he is lying!!!! But, things are not so bad if you are a member of Obama’s inner circle! 454 White House Aides (Obama lackeys) cost the taxpayers $37.1 million! While 14,000,000 Americans still seek employment, working for Obama is a bonanza! One-third of his aides earn more than $100,000 per year; while the top 21 earn $172,000 (the max allowed)! Another reason why being a civil servant is a good deal! (See post: “I want to work for the government” on 12/6/2010)
And, sometimes, it seems that you don’t have to pay taxes working for the government! Tom Daschle, Obama’s appointee to the run the Health and Human Services Department, owed ~$120,000 to the IRS and was never confirmed! Little Timmy Geithner owed $42,000 in back taxes and penalties to the agency that he now runs! Finally, as of the end of 2009, 41 people within Obama’s White House owed a total of $831,000 in delinquent taxes! Ain’t life sweet for the working man!!!
