Lots of jobs "saved or created" here in CT too...

Congratulations, people of the 42nd congressional district of Connecticut!  The much-touted Recovery Act is bringing 25 new jobs there!

And 9th district, how's that $18.3 million working out for ya?

What's that?  Oh, right.  There is no 42nd or 9th district.  No 6th (anymore), 64th, 20th, or 86th, either.

but. but there are jobs..... who cares if they got the district right?  I'm in favor of the 5000 jobs created in an Alabama district from a 40,000 dollar grant.  Now thats some efficient job creation!!

Could we get these same guys to estimate the economic recovery? That would do wonders for consumer confidence!!
