Demo­crat in­com­pe­tence comes at a hefty cost to the nation

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Pres­i­dent Obama’s eco­nomic stim­u­lus has added or saved just un­der 2.4 mil­lion jobs pri­vate or pub­lic at a cost to date of $666 bil- lion. That’s a cost to tax­pay­ers of $278,000 per job. Or to put it an­other way, the gov­ern­ment could sim­ply have cut a $100,000 check to ev­ery- one whose em­ploy­ment was al­legedly made pos­si­ble by the “stim­u­lus,” and tax­pay­ers would have come out $427 bil­lion ahead. Once again Demo­cratic math­e­mat­ics equals fis­cal ir­re­spon­si­bil­ity. Ra­mon E. Schaller Boxford, Mas­sachusetts
