Did you happen to see how many JOBS were created?

Good point. That document shows that 54,954 direct jobs were created at a cost of $7,455.52 per job, or a total of 190,360 direct and indirect jobs were created, at a cost to the state of $2,308.98 per job. Considering that the federal government crows about creating a few hundred job that cost the taxpayers over $100k per job, it looks like Texas has the right idea. If Perry had $800 billion to spend on job creation like Obama did, by this calculation, he could have created 107,303,045 direct jobs.

Also, did you see the return on investment? The state was getting back from a LOW of 27x the investment up to over 100x the investment in increased Gross State Product. This has got to be one of the most effective economic stimulus programs in history!

Thanks, cripplecreek. I never realized how effect the TEF program was at job creation. I'll be sure to post this information every time someone brings the subject up.

Yeah I see that it also claims jobs were created at HelioVolt but HelioVolt disagrees and says they won’t be creating the jobs. Seems to me that you’re playing Obama games with number (lying) just like Obama’s stimulus.

Why the lack of courage in noticing that?

So corporate welfare IS conservative?! Thanks for the update. Government subsidizing multi-billion dollar corporatons to give them an advantage against smaller competition. Hence reducing overall competition is capitalist and conservative, right?

Airbus, and China salute you. Perrybots are amazing...
