"The Office of Legislative Budget Assistant reported last week that $413.6 million made its way to the state [NH] under a list of programs that involve education, highways, environmental, health and human services, energy and law enforcement."
Great, huh? But the kicker is:
"...a total of 50 jobs have been created by the funding, 34 of them full time. The OES will be headed by a director whom Gov. John Lynch has not yet appointed. All five OES jobs are described as full-time temporary positions that will go out of existence in September 2011"
$413 million in stimulus has created 34 permanent jobs in NH (5 of which are jobs to watch the stimulus money)! That sounds SO much better than stimulating the economy by letting taxpayers and business owners keep more of their money to spend! (sarcasm)
What do you think?
