Yesterday I noted that House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) and fellow House Republicans were claiming on the House floor that their alternative stimulus plan would create 6.2 million new jobs according to the White House’s own numbers. And I asked if anybody knew how they came up with that number. Well, it turns out, pretty much out of their backsides.
We checked with House sources and this is how they came up with that number.
