The following is from

Welcome to is a website that lets you, the taxpayer, figure out where the money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is going. There are going to be a few different ways to search for information. The money is being distributed by Federal agencies, and soon you'll be able to see where it's going -- to which states, to which congressional districts, even to which Federal contractors. As soon as we are able to, we'll display that information visually in maps, charts, and graphics.

Let's US figure out where the money is going???!!!!! You don't know?? I want YOU to tell me where YOU SENT IT! Don't you KNOW????!!!

"As soon as we are able to, we'll display that information" - Don't you mean, as soon as YOU FIGURE OUT WHERE THE BILL SENT IT, you'll be able to display it???!!!

This is EXACTLY what they should have posted and let everyone view it BEFORE it was voted on. Looks good but... just stinks.

From the FAQ:

Q: I heard I'd be able to track recovery funds. Why can't I do that?
A: You aren't able to track funds yet because we have not yet started receiving information from Federal agencies on how they are going to allocate the money. It takes a little bit of time for them to make sure your money is going to be spent wisely. Right now, the site features an overview of the law and an explanation of what it is intended to accomplish. You will have access to data as soon as we begin receiving it from agencies.

Bunk! Isn't that what APPROPRIATIONS are for? We have to wait for the Federal Agencies to start spending it before we can start tracking it? Ummm... what about planning for the efficient use of OUR money?

Sorry, one more thing and I'll quit talking to myself...

This is just FUNNY... why am I laughing?? I guess it's just because I don't feel like crying at the moment... I must be delirious because I seriously LAUGHED OUT LOUD when I saw that website. Sad... and we PAY them to do this stuff.

From the website...

We are asking the American people to trust their government with an unprecedented level of funding to address the economic emergency.

Yea let us trust the same government that had a huge hand in putting us into this situation in the first place with decades of corruption.

This statement alone makes me want to yak.

I believe that the only transparency we will see from this bill is the bold faced lies told to explain where the money went.

When will people learn that when you throw government into the mix,it always turns the water murky.

One thing that Obama said today when he signed it was that it would make sure that all families that are now below the Poverty line would be above the poverty line and would never go below it again???? How the heck is he going to do that? I happen to know a family of 5 in our neighbor hood that is living on $700 a month that is way below that line. What is he going to do hand them a monthly check for $1000 a month to put them at the poverty line? Because even I am not going to fall for that. This lady is disabled and has 4 children. So its not like they can train her to work.
