Levin: Obama's Jobs Bill 'Creating Millionaires and Billionaires' With Tax Dollars

Conservative radio icon Mark Levin says that, according to Obama’s own numbers, “[W]e are creating millionaires and billionaires from Obama’s jobs bill, or the guy is nearly a millionaire.”

Levin made the observation when citing a story about Obama’s claim that his plan will create 1.9 million jobs at a cost of $447 billion – which comes out to $235,263 of tax dollars spent per job created.

Which raises an interesting question: if the Obama’s going to spend this money, wouldn’t we be better off if he just gave each of those 1.9 million people $235,263?

But, no, Obama can’t do that - because, then, he’d be turning them into the very people he’s trying to vilify and punish as he pushes his plan to raise taxes.
