Shock: The Stimulus Job Numbers Just Don't Add Up!

"The Obama administration, under fire for inflating job growth from the $787 billion stimulus plan, slashed over 60,000 jobs from its most recent report on the program because the reporting outlets had submitted "unrealistic data," according to a document obtained by ABC News.

The Office of Management and Budget document shows that before an Oct. 30 progress report on the program the administration asked the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board to remove information from 12 stimulus recipients that contained "unrealistic data," including "unrealistic job data."

One recipient – Talladega County of Alabama – claimed that 5,000 jobs had been saved or created from only $42,000 in stimulus funds."

Hmmm. The stimulus isn't working as well as they said?  The job numbers make no sense?

But I'm sure that the healthcare "reform" statistics will be just fine.  Right? Right??
