That compares to $37 million that was spent in 2001. The total cost in outside public relations firms for the fist 4 years came to $250 million dollars.

The Bush administration has more than doubled its spending on outside contracts with public relations firms during the past four years, according to an analysis of federal procurement data by congressional Democrats.

The administration spent at least $88 million in fiscal 2004 on contracts with major public relations firms, the analysis found, compared with $37 million in 2001, Bush's first year in office. In all, the administration spent $250 million on public relations contracts during its first term, compared with $128 million spent for President Clinton between 1997 and 2000. The analysis did not examine what the Clinton administration spent during its first term.

Its interesting that most of the expenditures comes out of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Their spending on these outside firms totaled $94 million. While the release of the data was politically motivated, one still has to wonder what the money actually bought or what exactly were the issues or peculations being influenced.

A good product will sell it’s self so the saying goes, one would think the money would have been better spent on Medicaid / Medicare.
