Obama Green Jobs Cost $5 Million Each!
The Washington Post might be a day late and $38 billion short, but
it's being honest about Barack Obama's failed green jobs program.
According to the Post, the "$38.6 billion loan guarantee program" has created just "3,545 new, permanent jobs" "after giving out almost half the allocated amount."
For those not doing the math at home, that means more than $5 million per job.
WHAT A DEAL FOR THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER!
The Post outlined Obama administration promises to "create or save
65,000 jobs" in the green jobs category. What it left out was that,
while campaigning, Obama promised to create 5 million "green" jobs. He's
about 4,996,455 short.
The green jobs program has come under scrutiny following "the
collapse of Solyndra, a solar-panel maker whose closure could leave
taxpayers on the hook for as much as $527 million."
According to the Post, the White House won't even admit it's failing.
"The Energy Department says that the green-jobs program is still on
track to meet its employment goals. It claims credit for saving 33,000
jobs at Ford Motor Co. - about half of the Detroit automaker's entire
hourly and salaried U.S. workforce."
