(NECN) - The White House is citing a Massachusetts battery company as evidence of the success of the stimulus act.

According to a new report due out today, A123 is using $249 million in stimulus money to build its new factories in Michigan.

The White House says A123 has already created 261 jobs. The report is aimed at republican critics who say the stimulus act has not created jobs.

Meantime, the Wall Street Journal reports that Washington, D.C. received $3.7 billion in stimulus money, or about $2,000 per resident. That's nearly three times the national average.
