When Mr Obama "met with the nation's governors last week, they said the states had $136 billion worth of road, bridge and other projects approved ready to go as soon as money became available. They estimated that each billion dollars spent would create 40,000 jobs". http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/07/us/politics/07radio.html?hp

It works out to $25,000 per job, and if there's $136 billion worth of jobs, then you have 5,440,000 million jobs - for one year?
