Statements about Stimulus

Says U.S. Rep. John Barrow "left taxpayers on the hook for $950k study on genetic makeup of ants."

Said U.S. Rep. Jim Marshall, D-Macon, sent nearly $2 billion overseas to build wind turbines and create jobs, mostly in China

Federal stimulus money went to a Georgia Tech project that will "apparently involve the professor jamming with 'world-renowned musicians' to 'hopefully also create satisfying works of art.'"  

"Roy Barnes is part of the team that has run up trillions of dollars in debt that Americans will spend years paying off, and they've done it without creating one job."

Georgia has lost more than 124,000 jobs and the unemployment rate has increased since the stimulus passed
