Stimulus: No Love For New Orleans


By the White House's own projections (.pdf), the stimulus is supposed to create or save about 8,000 jobs per congressional district. DC gets 12,000 jobs, and some Nevada and Utah districts make out above average, but generally the projections are between 7,000 and 9,000 a district almost uniformly down the line.

But then there's Louisiana's 2nd District. New Orleans. Projected job creation: 4,800. Easily 1,200 less than any other district in the country.

Glaringly bad in the optics.
