454 White House aids making an average of $81,765 apiece. My question is: For what?
On the bright side, at least those aren’t stimulus jobs, which cost an average of $278,000. Did all that money go to the people performing those jobs? Of course not. Let’s be very generous — why stop now? — and pretend that each of those stimulus jobs is worth as much as a White House aid.
Almost two hundred grand per job and it went — where?
Well, that’s a very good question and I’m glad I’ve asked it. And now we need to ask Congress to start asking questions.
It’s time to audit the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, because it’s blindingly obvious that it was neither.
