Some have said that the stimulus hasn't saved any jobs, or cost over $500,000 per job saved, (would have been cheaper to send out checks to "we the people" and job increases have been in GOVERNMENT jobs not the private sector, but here is a SUPREME case where at least one job was saved.
Take for instance Oregon State University Athletic Director Bob DeCarolis.
Now Mr. DeCarolis was considering firing their Basketball Coach.......
after an 8 -11 start (2-5) in the Pac 10 conference).
When word reached Washington , Undersecretary of Education Martha Kanter
was dispatched to Corvallis with $17 million in stimulus money (from you and me, the taxpayers) for the university.
Thankfully, Craig Robinson's job is safe for another year
Now comes the interesting part of our story....
For those of you unfamiliar with Coach Robinson,
he just so happens to be the brother-in-law of none other than our country's beloved President,
NOW YOU'RE CATCHING ON......
that's right he is the brother of Michelle Obama!
But, hey, can't we all come to the conclusion that Coach Robinson's job security was all just a coincidence?
I'm sure of it! Aren't You?
