Obama ‘Stimulus’ Visit Stimulates Day Off Without Pay For Workers

This is a little like going to Louisiana and highlighting how much you’re doing for the oil spill cleanup effort while pouring a pint of Valvoline in the Gulf.

From Fox News:

President Obama went to the groundbreaking of a road project in Columbus, Ohio, Friday to show that his massive stimulus package is still churning out jobs — a “good news” story that was anything but for some construction workers who were trying to figure out how to make up for the payday they lost due to the president’s visit.

The workers were told not to report to their construction project at a nearby hospital Friday, because the Secret Service was shutting it down for security reasons. They also were told that they would not get paid for the forced day off.

The president blows a trillion taxpayer dollars on a “stimulus” sham and yet can’t find a way to make sure a few construction workers still get a couple hundred dollars each to make themselves scarce during his “10,000th stimulus project” showpiece?

He should have at least given them a job standing behind him during the speech — there’s plenty of room back there:


In any case, this marks the second time in less than a month, that I know of, that workers have been forced to take unpaid time off so Obama could brag about how much he’s doing for middle class jobs.

Update: Obama’s trip to Ohio yesterday cost between $500,000 and $1 million and he spoke for less than 10 minutes.
