Porkulus Spend Goes (D), Unemployed Get Stiffed

Not that it's surprising, but it seems that Porkulus spend was twice as heavy in (D) districts as in (R) districts.

But what is truly disgusting is this finding:

The Mercatus Center at George Mason University reviewed the distribution of $157 billion in stimulus dollars based on publicly available reports and found that there was “no statistical correlation” between the amount of money a district got and its income or unemployment rate.

You would think, right, that if the administration believes in its theory that government money can create jobs, they would spend a lot of money in districts that have high unemployment,” study co-author Veronique de Rugy said. “We found absolutely no relationship...."

What "interests of the people"?
