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!
