NOWHAMPSHIRE.COM – “The reason for the low level of job creation is easily gleaned from the so-called Progress Report issued on August 19th: At least $175,000,000 of the first $336 million of stimulus money spent in the New Hampshire has replaced existing state spending on education, housing and safety programs which may have been cut due to state budget constraints. A NowHampshire.com investigation reveals almost $37,000 of that money went to a Bedford beauty school that does not grant degrees.” (Shawn Millerick, “Bedford Beauty School Received Stimulus Funds,” NowHampshire.com, August 24, 2009)
