Jeffry Eisenach and Kevin Caves of Navigant Economics, a financial and economic analysis and consulting firm looked at the results of Obama's rural broadband expansion efforts. The results aren't very pretty.

The Navigant analysts evaluated programs in three areas: Southwestern Montana, Northwestern Kansas, and Northern Minnesota that received Stimulus funds to extend broadband access to homes currently lacking service.

According to their report, it cost on average $349,234 per household.


Eisenach and Caves found that if 3G wireless was included, only seven households in the entire region could be considered to be without any option for access. Thus, the cost to extend access to those seven homes was about $7 million each.

Southwest Montana got internet access they really didn't need
Daniels County got a multi million dollar Port of Entry they didn't need.
Bozeman got all expense paid trips to China and a new tennis court
Helena got paint for a mural
Billings got landscaping at a Privately owned hotel

and the list goes on

We have pointed all of these out but Oldtimer is not going to comment on the waste of these projects because everyone in VALLEY COUNTY that wants a job has one and his family is making half price deals on lake front properties. :roll: I guess he doesn't realize that those working Valley County people are paying taxes to pay for these WASTFUL PROJECTS in the rest of Montana and they will be paying for a LLLOOOONNNNGGGGGG time as will his GRANDCHILDREN thanks to his hero Obama's spending

Note to Oldtimer the unemployment rate in the US went up again today. Is that the direction it should be going if Obama's economic policies are actually working like he claims they are?
