For anyone out there wondering where all that stimulus money is going, check out www.recovery.gov. I have to say that I was somewhat skeptical about the impact of all that Recovery Act spending. Actually, I'm still somewhat skeptical about the impact. However, I spent some time digging around the site tonight and while I was heard to issue a couple "Oh come on"'s and a few "Seriously?"'s I also found myself thinking "Well that's not so bad" for a few.
This one story in particularly about an EPA project in PA was interesting. Not only did they create jobs from the project, but they are upgrading water service where residents "for the last 10 years...periodically have been without sufficient quantities of clean drinking water, or without water service at all." It might be costing $12.5 million to create 100 jobs, but really 40,000 people are being positively impacted.
