    Many California jobs 'saved' by stimulus funds weren't in jeopardy

    Many California jobs 'saved' by stimulus funds weren't in jeopardy - Sacramento News - Local and Breaking Sacramento News | Sacramento Bee

    If you are one of those wondering if Obama and Schwarzenegger were birds of a feather when it comes to being pals and liars. Here's your answer.

    Up to one-fourth of the 110,000 jobs reported as saved by federal stimulus money in California probably never were in danger, a Bee review has found.

    California State University officials reported late last week that they saved more jobs with stimulus money than the number of jobs saved in Texas and in 44 other states.

    In a required state report to the federal government, the university system said the $268.5 million it received in stimulus funding through October allowed it to retain 26,156 employees.

    That total represents more than half of CSU's statewide work force. However, university officials confirmed Thursday that half their workers were not going to be laid off without the stimulus dollars.

    "This is not really a real number of people," CSU spokeswoman Clara Potes-Fellow said. "It's like a budget number."

    That certainly was not the way Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger described it at a news event with Vice President Joe Biden late last week, where he focused on people, not budgets.
    Further proof that Obama will do and say anything to maintain the facade that he has done something worth while, and that Arnold the RINO is with him.

    How could they be saved if they weren't in jeopardy?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    The claim that they saved in job can not be quantified. It's like proving a negative can't be done.

    It's another ploy being used to cloudy the waters and make idiots wasting billions and claiming they saved.
    Lets say the claims of the Obama bunch were true try to balance that against the number lost and the NET GAIN IS STILL MINUS 3 MILLION.

    This whole "we saved jobs" arguments is BS. Unemployment is still increasing. That isn't fixing anything.
