The Stimulus Money… We Found the Jobs

Posted by courage On November - 16 - 2009

From the Washington Times:

Of the $1 billion in clean-energy stimulus money spent since the beginning of September, $850 million has gone to foreign wind companies. It doesn’t take a bunch of experts at a hastily planned “jobs summit” to discover this isn’t the way to bolster employment in America.

Geez.. 75% of the money went to foreign companies.

Indeed, the 11 U.S. wind farms that received stimulus money from the Treasury have imported 695 of the 982 wind turbines to be installed, creating 4,500 jobs overseas. That’s far more overseas work than the stimulus money has created in the United States.

Ah the global poser-in-chief has a plan.. use US tax payer dollars to fund and create jobs overseas, doesn’t this make you feel warm and fuzzy?
