Do the math

Don Winstead, Florida’s “stimulus czar” reports that 29,322 jobs have been created due to stimulus spending in Florida. Yay. Donny then goes on to hedge and haw in this widely-reported story. Example from Gainesville Sun.

What Donny fails to mention is that Florida’s seasonally-adjusted unemployment now stands at 11%. So while stimulus may have created 29,322 jobs in Florida, or whatever wild-ass number Donny wants to toss out there, 8 years of looting and pillaging like Vikings left more than 1,000,000 Floridians unemployed.
