Scott Fletcher 5pts I love articles like this one. Whoever authored this they are a complete moron! Simple math if anyone on here can do it. 1.5 million jobs saved, if not OK take those people on unemployment at $400 per week and lets say 52 weeks because at that time there were no jobs anywhere and the gov't was running benefit extensions, so that's over $30 billion payout with no return. People also need to understand that financial institutions created this mess and their bailouts were free.
