No More Stimulus Jobs

Just great. ABC News reports that a bunch of those jobs supposedly created by the stimulus never really existed. The Obama administration has removed 60,000 from their annual report on stimulus funding outcomes because recipients of the federal funding had been reporting “unrealistic data.” It’s bureaucracy at its worst.

While this looks bad for the Obama administration in regards to the effectiveness of the stimulus, at least they were honest enough to investigate and remove supposedly created jobs that weren’t really there.

In related news, The Washington Examiner has assembled a map of inflated numbers of jobs created across the country.
