Here is how they describe it:
Recovery.gov is a website that lets you, the taxpayer, figure out where the money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is going. There are going to be a few different ways to search for information. The money is being distributed by Federal agencies, and soon you'll be able to see where it's going -- to which states, to which congressional districts, even to which Federal contractors. As soon as we are able to, we'll display that information visually in maps, charts, and graphics.
There are all kinds of neat things to see and discover. Take a minute to check it out and see for yourself what is there. A timeline to track what is happening. The full text of the bill. A place to share our stories how this is affecting us.
This is something unique. Never before has our government given us a chance to see exactly what it is doing with our money, how it is dispersing it, how it is spending it, to give us a chance to make suggestions on how to do it better.
I am sure there will still be criticisms, but this is really unprecedented. Spin this one GOP.
