(CNSNews.com) - Federal contractors receiving money for projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)—the $862 billion economic stimulus law President Barack Obama signed in February 2009—have been encouraged and, in some cases, required by the administration to post signs that say their work is funded by that specific act.
“Funded By: American Recovery and Reinvestment Act/ Barack Obama, President.”

Thats the point though. Why should federal money pay for your town's police officers? It should'nt. Same for bridge maintenance.
This entire stimulus effort has been a short-sighted effort to grease as many political districts and politicans as possible, not to build lasting infrastructure that would have a meaningful impact. It would be better to spend 100% of the money to rehabilitate one neglected city than this nickel and dime business we're currently involved in
