Job creation numbers in the news again

This time ABC has news those jobs saved or created came from congressional districts that don’t actually exist. From their story:

Here’s a stimulus success story: In Arizona’s 15th congressional district, 30 jobs have been saved or created with just $761,420 in federal stimulus spending. At least that’s what the Web site set up by the Obama administration to track the $787 billion stimulus says.

There’s one problem, though: There is no 15th congressional district in Arizona; the state has only eight districts.

You’ll recall a Milwaukee reporter found a few discrepancies as well.

Dang America! You are being scammed.


  1. Is there any difference between Bernie Madoff and BO except that one is in jail? Both are involved in mega dollar ponzi schemes.

  2. Randy in Richmond says:

    Will a proposed new health care system, run by the same administration, also be a scam ?
