Let’s talk about Federal Transparency:
After continued talk of the Obama Administration’s successes of saving or creating millions of jobs across the country and in Utah, Congressman Rob Bishop (UT-01) today decided to check out how Utah fared from the Economic Recovery Act on Recovery.gov, a website hosted by Vice President Joe Biden and the Executive Branch tracking how stimulus dollars impacted states.
According to figures listed on Recovery.gov, $1,124,614 in federal funding from the stimulus act has been spent this year in Utah’s Fourth Congressional District – a district which doesn’t exist. The website also claims that the 00 Congressional District in Utah has turned $539,834 dollars it received in federal funding into 26 jobs. “If one counts the 00 district [also listed], we’ve actually got 5 seats in [the House],” Bishop added.
Emphasis added by me.
Yep, hope and change.
