831? That was the first year. It was incorporated into the budget and repeated for he rest of his term to no positive effect.

I think he has been reading too many of his own White House press releases.

Some wag said "At least Roosevelt had the Hoover Dam and Eisenhower had the national highway system to point to. All Obama has is a falling down Solyndra building."
