Obama Job Plan = $210,000 per job created

I just got done reading a NY Times Article about Obama’s job plan.

 

Conservative estimates set 1,300,000 new jobs by the end of 2012 and 800,000 more by the end of 2013 for a total of 2.1 million jobs.

Others say that it might be 2.7 million jobs created.

The cost of this is $447 billion.  That’s $447,000,000,000.00 for 2,100,000 jobs.  That means that each job costs the government $212,857.14.

(Unless the high estimates are right and it ends up costing only $165,555.56)

Alas I don’t know the details about the job plan and all the “Trickle Down” thoughts put into it.  However, I would think it should cost a lot less than $200k per job.  What are your thoughts?
