Your tax dollars at work

Here are a couple of interesting things that have crossed my path recently.
  • Want to know how the federal government plans to use the $700 billion we graciously authorized them to spend to get us out of the hole their Wall Street pals got us into? Check out the watchdog site created by NetAge Endless Knots. Of course, it probably takes an extra advanced degree just to understand a federal agency organizational chart...
  • Think it's a snap to balance the state budget? The Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center has teamed with boston.com to create an online exercise in how to cut $12.6 billion should Question 1 pass. They call it an interactive "game" but I didn't have a lot of fun learning abut the consequences...

Thanks for cross-linking to the series I'm running on "Transparency and the Office of Financial Stability," Outraged Liberal, whoever you are. How'd you find my posts?

That was a pretty fun game, recreating the type of small government the writers of the Constitution envisioned rocks. Democrats and Republicans are both a joke and have no business being allowed to run the government any longer. Revive the Constitution and vote Third Party in 08'
