    The question is how many jobs does $20 million get you.

    If you are Obama it gets you 14 jobs.

    "California isn’t the only place, though, where the green dream is falling short of reality. Last year, Seattle won a $20 million federal grant to invest in weatherization programs. The money was to be spent on insulating crawl spaces, serving to create jobs while helping the environment by reducing the energy needed to heat homes. The program, which was announced at the White House on the eve of Earth Day, has proven to be a total flop.

    M]ore than a year later, Seattle’s numbers are lackluster. As of last week, only three homes had been retrofitted and just 14 new jobs have emerged from the program. Many of the jobs are administrative, and not the entry-level pathways once dreamed of for low-income workers. Some people wonder if the original goals are now achievable."

    Obama poured billions into solar only to see those companies go out of business. The Chinese out smarted Obama by taking over the solar panel industry with low cost solar. Obama wasn't smart enough to see that tarrifs on solar from China was required to even the playing field.

    Public investment, private investment - all down the drain.

    Stupid government!
