Hope and Change

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, a website hosted by Vice President Joe Biden and the Executive Branch tracking how stimulus dollars impacted states.

According to figures listed on, $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.
