"Stimulus": Saved, Maybe. Created? Nope

We know that Government jobs are safe, Allah be praised!

Not so much with private-sector, at least in roadbuilding.

Road contractors in Wisconsin are discovering the federal stimulus package is more like a federal status quo package.

“It’s nice because we’ve been able to avoid layoffs,” said Rick Forsythe, division manager for Ashland-based Northwoods Paving Co. “But we’ve just tried to skate by with what we have. We haven’t been able to hire new workers.”

The guy's about to get a call from Joe Biden.
