The Gang That Couldn't Count Straight: Spendulus & Health Care

Back in the day, we poked fun at then-Presidential candidate Obama's claim that he'd been to "all 57 states." Not having a Harvard Law degree, we relied on our high school teachers' claims that there were but 50. But it appears that President Obama's Spendulous efforts are indeed reaching all 57 states:

"In Arizona's 9th Congressional District, 30 jobs have been saved or created with just $761,420 in federal stimulus spending. At least that's what the website set up by the Obama Administration to track the $787 billion stimulus says."

Good news, right?

Well, not so much:

"There is no 9th Congressional District in Arizona; the state has only eight Congressional Districts."


But that's just a fluke, right? A one off?


"There's no 86th Congressional District in Arizona either, but the government's Web site says $34 million in stimulus money has been spent there."

And the list goes on from there.

Quick - Put these guys in charge of our health care!
