Obama - Buy US Some More Jobs

About: obama to propose $300 billion jobs package: reports| reuters

                          .... An Imagined Play in Many Acts ...
Crowd Demand: YoBama - Buy us Mo' Jobs.
O: Sure! How about 300 Billion $$$ worth ? (Scratch that it's 400 billion this AM)... it's 450 billion at speech time.
Concerned Cit: BTW, What are you going to buy them with?
O: Tax the Rich Squeeze the Banks.
Concerned Cit: But then they will have less money to hire more people.
O: Then we'll print some more.
Concerned Cit: That lowers the value of all people's money & everything will cost more. People will lose their jobs.
O: Hmmm..... Can I take another vacation or give another speech?
.... (Gives another speech)
O: Oh! I got an idea how about I take some of your money over there, you have too much & I make some jobs over here .. maybe fix some roads or buildings, eh?
Concerned Cit:  You Did that already & employment dropped some more.
O: Well, this time I really mean it (at least until election day).
more to come.

source: ...
Obama administration changes jobs "Saved or Created" to jobs "Supported" You can see their document available here. There is no mention of "saved or created." The term "supported" doesn't tell you whether those jobs would still have existed without the subsidy.
... O:  Now that looks better!

You might want to read your anti solar spin against Obama with due diligance to these clues about energy investment ...



Mark de LA says
You might want to reframe the problem back to the article.  Obama stimulus blew 1/2 billion dollars on solar tech that made no mone & went bankrupt. Don't loan money belonging to the taxpayers to businesses which depend upon subsidies whatever they are.

Nope, got your framing, don't like it. 

Subsidizing solar would be better than subsiding oil which does not need it.  That does appear to me to be a fact that is pretty much undeniable.  The government loans money all the time to many outfits ... probably most of it goes to bankers and ends up in their christmas bonuses ... too bad this one did not pan out ... but i reject the rush limbaugh twist on this unfortunate investment ... at least it went to a real company trying to make a real alternative energy product.  
Sorry, Dude - it was a con-job. When are you going to wake up!
fsvoi, i'm sure that is true.

...
The 1.75 trillion that O spent divided by the number of households 112,611,029 is 15,540 enough for every household in the US to have solar energy power. Chew on that for a while, eh!

... may not be enough Sun, though ...

Perhaps a truer, "Jobs not yet destroyed" would be better.

... more crony capitalism

http://www.politico.com/politico44/2012/01/buffetts-secretary-to-join-obama-112046.html - how tight are the Obamas & why are they courting Warren Buffet - a billionaire into the ruling class enclave?

... more crony capitalism

Mark de LA says
ABC News: ... President Obama's Department of Energy helped finance several green energy companies that later fell into bankruptcy -- but not before the firms doled out six-figure bonuses and payouts to top executives, a Center for Public Integrity and ABC News investigation found.

Take, for instance, Beacon Power Corp., the second recipient of an Energy Department loan guarantee in 2009. In March 2010, the Massachusetts energy storage company paid cash bonuses of $259,285 to three executives in part due to progress made on the $43 million energy loan, Securities and Exchange Commission records show. Last October, Beacon Power filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

... .. more jobs for bankruptcy attorneys & accountants & Obama cronies, eh?
