Acorn Districts

November 18, 2009

At last tally Chairman Zero has sent 6.4 billion dollars to 440 districts that don’t exist. Did I say that right? $6,400,000,000.00. Yup, that’s right. To 440 districts that must have been created by and for acorn as there are only 435 districts that I’m aware of. In these fantasy districts he has created or saved over 28,000 jobs. That’s adding to like $225,000.00 per job. Can I have one?

Rhode Island’s 86th congressional district created or saved almost 60 jobs for a mere $10,217,806.00. That’s $205,835.49 per job. Not too shabby. Is anybody pissed off yet? Does Rhode Island really have 86 congressional districts?

Hawaii is a big winner creating or saving 3.4 jobs with a paltry $45,639,408.00. That’s right 45 million. Only a shade over 13 million per job. Really, three Oprahs in one state. How can this be? They actually created or saved zero jobs in their 99th congressional district with only 800 large. 99th? Did they think nobody was going to look at this stuff?

Now, DC’s 99th congressional district got almost 137 million dollars. Yes, almost all of the states and territories had a 99th district. Almost all of them had a 00 congressional district as well. Oh, did I say territories. Yes I did.

Northern Mariana Islands – $44 million, Guam – $220 million, Puerto Rico – $1.9 billion, American Samoa – $1.4 million, but of course the big winner was DC with a grand total of  $2.8 billion (billion, not a typo) and all of this to districts that don’t exist. It begs the question, where did it really go? Again, $6,383,184,549.00. Anybody pissed yet? FYI, Minnesota has eight congressional districts. Are you starting to get the picture.
