Stimulus Bill Employment Program Claims Become Nation's Largest "Shovel Ready" Project

Washington, D.C.--An independent analysis by the Associated Press concluded that, ten months into President Obama's first economic "stimulus" plan, a surge in spending on roads and bridges has had no effect on local unemployment and only barely helped the construction industry, making the Obama Administration's claims regarding the success of its programs in producing jobs the nation's largest "shovel ready" project.

Now that the Obama Administion's program to create transportation jobs has failed entirely to produce what Obama once said was needed to address an "urgent need to accelerate job growth," one construction industry official said "It's come time to finally bury those programs in one of the biggest excavation sites the world has ever seen."
