    Representative Brown-Waite from Florida just disclosed that it cost 18 MILLION DOLLARS to update the Recovery.Gov website to track the stimulus money spent--& she found out that another company would have done it for 600 thousand.

    She was on Greta Van Sustren--FOX news describing that there are 5 jobs that cost 3 million dollars. She is very upset about the government waste in the stimulus bill & is asking where the money went too--when this web-site listed jobs saved or created in congressional districts that do not even exist.


    WASHINGTON -- Bugs in a website meant to track stimulus funding prompted U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite, R-Brooksville, to file a complaint today with recovery.gov about the website itself.

    As reported this week, the website lists projects in congressional districts that don't exist and until recently overestimated the number of jobs created by the $787 billion stimulus package. Readers are encouraged to report waste, fraud and abuse to the website.

    “At a time when so many Americans are out of work and our nation’s debt has exploded, that the Administration would spend so much money on what now turns out to be propaganda is quite frankly appalling,” said Brown-Waite in a statement.

    The administration of President Barack Obama has found transparency to be a double-edged sword, as the White House has been criticized for not providing accurate figures.

    Vice President Joe Biden recently attributed the errors to bad bookkeeping and said the administration was working to fix the problem.

    And some of you "believe" they can handle your heatlh care!--::lol::lol::lol:
