    With the revelation that CalTrans dramatically over-reported the number of jobs created or saved with stimulus money, we've added hundreds more to our job count.

    12/15/09

    We've added hundreds more jobs that weren't really created or saved from new media reports and further analysis of Recovery.gov data.

    12/1/09 UPDATE:

    Roughly 2,000 new imaginary stimulus jobs have been added to the map, including hundreds of reported Head Start jobs that were actually just pay raises.

    11/26/09 UPDATE:

    We've added more than 100 jobs that were "created or saved" with impossibly small amounts of money.

    11/24/09 UPDATE:

    California's stimulus audit has found a massive overcount of more than 13,000 corrections jobs supposedly "saved."

    11/19 UPDATE:

    We've added thousands more jobs in several dozen cities to our not really "created or saved" stimulus jobs map. The total number of jobs we have found to be "not really created or saved" now approaches 80,000. Several new states and the Territory of Guam have new entries. We will continue updating the map in the coming weeks.

    a whole lot of not really saved or created jobs, they had to fix the numbers so it would look successful because there was no real success.

    You can't count saved jobs. That is a lie from the liar of all liars
