Billions of Dollars Given to Counties That Voted for Obama

‘Spread the wealth’….to a select group of supporters.

……Billions of dollars in federal aid delivered directly to the local level to help revive the economy have gone overwhelmingly to places that supported…Obama in last year’s presidential election.
……Counties that supported Obama last year have reaped twice as much money per person from the administration’s $787 billion economic stimulus package as those that voted for his Republican rival, Sen. John McCain, a USA TODAY analysis of government disclosure and accounting records shows.

……The reports show the 872 counties that supported Obama received about $69 per person, on average. The 2,234 that supported McCain received about $34.

Wanna bet those counties are heavily embedded with ACORN? I haven’t seen the report that lists the beneficiaries, but I can say this: not all Obama voting enclaves have reaped benefits. The Democrat stronghold of Northeast Ohio, (the Cleveland area in particular) is still sliding into a financial abyss, with no end in sight.

How’s that ‘change’ working out for ya?
