BUT 87258 DOESN’T EXIST … OR 86705 …

Posted by Andrew Roman on January 4, 2010

Children make up imaginary friends. Students make up stories of how their homework somehow didn’t make it to class with them. Husbands make up excuses why they stayed out late. Democrats make up zip codes.

Zip codes.

Just when you thought the limits of Obamacratic creativity may have been reached – after all, how is it possible to top midnight Senate votes on an unread two-thousand page piece of health care legislation – the federal government once again raises the bar. Without question, there is nothing quite so cutting-edge as making up congressional districts out of whole cloth for the sake of proving how wildly successful the Obama stimulus bill is. It is the height of innovation in manipulation and deceit.

But making up entire zip codes is beyond ingenious.

This is better than a B+.

Sometimes, you simply have to step back and bow to the masters. (Just pretend they’re the King of Saudi Arabia or the Emperor of Japan).

Jim Scarantino from New Mexico Watchdog writes:

Closer examination of the latest recovery.gov report for New Mexico shows hundreds of thousands of dollars sent to and credited with creating jobs in zip codes that do not exist in New Mexico or anywhere else. Moreover, funds reported as being spent in New Mexico were given zip codes corresponding to areas in Washington and Oregon.

The recovery.gov site reports that $373,874 was spent in zip code 97052. Unfortunately, this expenditure created zip jobs. But $36,218 was credited with creating 5 jobs in zip code 87258. A cool hundred grand went into zip code 86705, but didn’t result in even one person finding work.

None of these zip codes exist in New Mexico, or anywhere else, for that matter.

The recovery.gov report also credits New Mexico with $131,139, though the zip codes receiving these funds (but creating no jobs) are in fact located in DuPont, Washington, Richland, Washington, and Gales Creek, Oregon.

Sure, the President can make up new definitions for the word “earmark,” and Vice President Joe Biden can make up little universes where his cognitions make sense, but banging out new zip codes is something that must be savored to be fully appreciated.

And just think … these are the people that want to control your health care.

All together now … especially the libs in the back …

Hope and change is what I see!
Hope and change, transparency!
Hope and change, aren’t you glad?
Hope and change, we’ve all been had.

Some of you aren’t singing.
