Hawkeye Review: I-JOBS: A call for transparency and accountability

Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye Review

The map above represents stimulus spending from the federal government
as of last month. This information comes from Onvia Tracking Recovery,
which is the "private" version of Stimulus.gov, the federal
governments version of attempting to be accountable for the trillions
that will be spent throughout the course of this recovery phase. How
much of your tax dollars will simply dissappear? There are already
estimates showing over 8% of stimulus spending is anticipated to go to
waste. That's a staggering amount of your tax dollars already conceded
to the abyss of our federal bureaucracy. Making matters worse, a
congressional subcommittee meeting held just yesterday saw 7 of the 10
members "skip" the proceedings!
