Barack Obama spent $90 billion on Green Energy Jobs creating only 16,100 jobs.
That comes out to $5.5 million per job.

Never mind the fact that the president did not post a perfect 140-character tweet as he claimed… The real scandal is Barack Obama’s continued dishonesty on the true costs of green energy.
Brian Hughes at the Examiner wrote this today.
Obama spent $90 billion of his stimulus package on green energy projects, including weatherization of buildings and development of electric vehicles. Yet, by the end of last year, just 16,100 people landed new jobs in the so-called green industry, Labor Department statistics show, far short of the 200,000 jobs the White House projected it would help create each year.
That comes out to $5.5 million per green job. What a deal!
But at least President Obama says the cost is coming down. We can hope… But, probably not until after the November election.
