How Tiffany’s Got $250K from the Recovery ActFebruary 1, 2013
On Feb. 13, 2009, Congress passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 at the urging of President Obama, who signed it into law four days later. A direct response to the economic crisis, the Recovery Act has three immediate goals: Create new jobs and save existing ones; Spur economic activity and invest in long-term growth; Foster unprecedented levels of accountability and transparency in government spending.
The Recovery Act intended to achieve those goals by providing $787 billion in: Tax cuts and benefits for millions of working families and businesses; Funding for entitlement programs, such as unemployment benefits; and Funding for federal contracts, grants and loans.
Hahahaha, what a load of crap! So I visited Recovery.gov to see just how that money is being spent, and I found some really gross, disturbing information. That’s what I’m talking about this week!
