Fake Jobs for Fake Congressional Districts (Rep. Joe Wilson)

Last night, I learned that the government website charged with reporting fraud and abuse is its very own worst offender.  Recovery.gov, the Administration’s website that is designed to report waste of misnamed stimulus funds, has produced a fake report.

Upon visiting the site, you see that $6 million was used to create six jobs in South Carolina’s fake 16th Congressional District.  It also shows that $3 million couldn’t even produce a single job in South Carolina’s fake 43rd district.  Somehow, $1.8 million was spent for 1.4 jobs in the fake 00 district.  This would be funny, but the money belongs to taxpayers, not the government.

I know we have been asking this Administration to show us the jobs, but this isn’t what we had in mind. 

In addition to correcting the errors on the website, I sincerely hope that this Administration will also listen to Republican ideas to jump start America’s economy by creating real jobs for hardworking American families.
