Spending Millions on signs advertising spending Billions

There is a Los Angeles Times report titled, Spending millions on signs advertising spending billions on Obama spending.

The report begins with a bit of a dig at Joe Biden:

Since his impossible schedule prohibits Vice President Joe Biden from making it around to every stimulus spending project across the country, the government has come up with the idea of posting project signs to show your $787 billion of hard-earned future tax money at work.

But just what do these signs really tell us?

Below is just one example of just how ridiculous these signs really are:

Reporters found one sign outside Washington on the road to Dulles International Airport that cost $10,000 to make and erect. It advertises a runway improvement that created all of 17 temporary construction jobs.
