What is your point? That these funds translate into full time stable "jobs"??? On the contrary, these are only political payback monies which coincidently are to produce the fewest stable jobs as possible. If Obama really wanted to create more stable jobs, he would have invested in things like nuclear power plants, which we all need, among other things.

Just more corruption from politicans. I can hardly wait until they are brought up on charges, put on trial, and sent to the pen.

Every one of these expenditures is a waste of taxpayer money. If the economy was booming, some might be acceptable. But when we're going bancrupt as a nation, this kind of spending is just plain crazy.
