Your Stimulus Dollars At Work

Hailed by Sen. Charles Schumer, (D-N.Y.) to “improve the quality of life for residents in the area,” and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, (D-N.Y.) to “create jobs across the region and promote long-term economic growth,” $120,000 in economic stimulus money was set aside to help clean-up of Onondaga Lake in Central New York.

It was to be a “federal stimulus project that would create jobs in Central New York, rebuild local infrastructure and help clean up Onondaga Lake.”

Instead, the “money will pay to update and reprint a 16-page color pamphlet from 2001, which updated the original version published in 1992” about the clean-up of Onodaga Lake.

The 1992 pamphlet cost $14,140.90 to produce less than 15,000 copies with the 2001 pamphlet costing $13,684.74 to produce 15,000 copies.

What was that Obama said, “If a federal agency proposes a project that will waste that money, I will not hesitate to call them out on it and put a stop to it.”
