Grading the Stimulus

 With unemployment finally hitting above 10 percent nationally, many wonder if stimulus funds were worth the hefty price tag.

The White House say stimulus cash is working.

"Hundreds of thousands of men and women are receiving a paycheck now that they would not otherwise have been receiving at this moment," said Vice President Joe Biden.

But U.S. Representative Mac Thornberry isn't so sure. He says the stimulus plan was too costly and has accomplished little.

So far, it's created 46 jobs in Potter County, at about $250,000 of stimulus per job created.
