Vice President Joe Biden said yesterday on CNN that nobody can say ”that the stimulus did not create jobs,” but he did not specificy how many jobs he believes President Barack Obama’s stimulus created and how much each of those jobs cost.
According to the most recent report  on the stimulus by the Congressional Budget Office, the law had created a maximum of 2 million jobs as the fourth quarter of 2011 at a cost of $412,500 per job.
On CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, host Candy Crowley asked Biden about the skepticism of those who point out “we did almost $1 trillion ins stimulus spending” and the administration said ”unemployment won’t gove above 8 percent,” and yet we have not had the results the administration forecast.
“No. Look, here’s the deal,” said Biden. ”Nobody can look you in the eye and tell you that the Recovery Act and that stimulus did not create jobs and did not do very good things for the economy.
