The White House has released its report on the stimulus, claiming that “it would pay for itself.”
Free money, eh? And for what?
Herman Cain highlights these examples:
- 1.3 million dollars went to “stimulus highway signs,” to show that the fruits of the stimulus at work.
- 1.2 million dollars went to a study of erectile dysfunction in overweight men.
- 3.4 million dollars were spent on a “turtle tunnel.”
- 535 million dollars spent on Solyndra, a company now bankrupt.
I spy America wasting upwards of 540 million dollars, and yet this it is still viewed as self-paying.
