Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job

Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job The Weekly Standard
"the “stimulus” has added or saved just under 2.4 million jobs — whether private or public — at a cost (to date) of $666 billion.
That’s a cost to taxpayers of $278,000 per job.

In other words, the government could simply have cut a $100,000 check to everyone whose employment was allegedly made possible by the “stimulus,” and taxpayers would have come out $427 billion ahead."
