    The Los Angeles City Controller said on Thursday the city's use of its share of the $800 billion federal stimulus fund has been disappointing.

    The city received $111 million in stimulus under American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) approved by the Congress more than year ago.


    "I'm disappointed that we've only created or retained 55 jobs after receiving $111 million," says Wendy Greuel, the city's controller, while releasing an audit report.

    Compelling evidence of why they need more money. Frankly I am surprised they created that many, perhaps they could fund another study, double check the numbers.

    The biggest problem working for the unemployement office is if you lose your job you still have to show up at the same place the next day.

    Approximately 2 million per job. Government "efficiency" anyone?

    hence proof liberals and socialists waste your tax dollars while a more conservative state without an income tax will take that same money and create jobs.

  8. Hermette has a phd in cut and paste. She thinks it conceals the fact that she can't actually form a coherent debate.

    Hermette is actually starting to remind me of that other left wing dipshit, period boy. You guys remember him? Lucrum's old stalker?
