    Get real.
    Sorry sport this goes way beyond a simple clerical error it is a willful pattern of deceit for example the GAO just reported that 58,000 of these jobs supposedly saved by the stimulus package were supposedly from companies that didn't even receive stimulus money. THEY ARE MAKING UP THE NUMBERS, just like they made up this district. If this was a simple honest mistake there wouldn't have been no less than 440 fake districts in all fifty states, 4 territories, and Washington D.C.. If this was a simple honest mistake we wouldn't be seeing report after report overstating job numbers we would also be seeing reports understating job numbers but we don't, the errors are all in one direction.

    Why would they lie? It's easily-noticed information, on a public website.

    So? They simply don't care. Question: can you audit these created jobs? Answer: No. Question: So how do you know that the statistics are accurate? Answer: Because they must be true they're on recovery.org. Oh I **** you not.

    "For example, recovery.gov says $34 million in stimulus money has been spent in Arizona's 86th congressional district in a project for the Navajo Housing authority, which is actually located in the 1st congressional district."

    It appears to be errors of the receipt submissions having the wrong district on them. Recovery.gov was just failing in quality control of the receipts submitted for their reports.
    Well we have our first liberal defender.

    Go here and familiarize yourself with the rules and come back and we can talk/debate to our hearts content on the Clinton surplus whether it was a real surplus on not. No use having two debates going on this thread is there?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    There never was a Clinton surplus, it was fantasy.

    Um when the interest on the national debt is calculated into the deficit number the deficit actually increased in the last year of the Clinton administration.
