Stimuluating to some

The Washington Post reports on the jobs attributed to the $787 billion stimulus package. Surprising, they seem to be centered around Washington, DC.
Businesses that received federal contracts from stimulus spending reported creating or saving about 30,000 jobs, according to figures released Thursday. The reports also suggest that the program has been particularly beneficial for the Washington region.

The contracts represent just a sliver of the spending under the $787 billion package. Also, much of the $16 billion allocated to the 9,000 businesses has not been spent.
