Can We Give L.A. Back?
It is truly difficult to imagine a more incompentent set of government officials than those running the city of Los Angeles…and that’s saying something now days. L.A. received $111 million in stimulus funds to create jobs. Well, how’d they do? Jobs created or saved: 55. No, that’s not a type. 55 jobs, at an approximate cost of $2 million apiece! Holy crap!
So, why did it take $111 million of tax-payer money to save/create 55 jobs you ask:
The audit says the numbers were disappointing due to bureaucratic red tape, absence of competitive bidding for projects in private sectors, inappropriate tracking of stimulus money and a laxity in bringing out timely job reports.
In other words, the problem was government.
‘While it doesn’t appear that any of the ARRA funds were misspent, the City needs to do a better job expediting the process and creating jobs….’
Only in an absurdly liberal and backward city like L.A. could spending $2 million of taxpayer money per job not equate to funds being misspent. Apparently the only way to misspend taxpayer money in L.A. would be doing someting like wall-papering government offices with it, or simply giving it back to the tax-payers.
L.A. is a joke, and an embarrassment to America. Not only can it only figure out how to save/create 55 jobs with $111 million of taxpayer money, it also built a $578 million public school. L.A. is liberalism on steroids. Its local unemployment rate is over 12%, but yet it continues to tax the crap out of its residents (well, those that pay taxes anyway). In other words, L.A. is a microcosm of America under Obama. Government can’t create jobs, it can only destroy them. Government can’t produce wealth, it can only steal it.
The question is: how long will it take America to realize that liberalism is literally destroying this country? Hopefully soon.
