And now we're learning the White House's own website is confusing the issue.

Recovery-dot-org lists stimulus jobs - The problem is - some of those jobs don't exist!

For instance, Congressman David Obey discovered a sewer project in his district was listed as creating 100 jobs.. But the real number is only five.
