The Final Minority Report

Because Even Minorities Oppose Liberalism & Statism

Stimulus oversight left up to taxpayers

The government has blown through almost A TRILLION DOLLARS and is not even bothering to keep track

Still, the North Carolina Democrat said he realized that tracking so much money will be difficult, acknowledging that “we’re trying to spend $500 billion quickly.”

Mr. Devaney, though, said his board – made up of 10 IGs – has a dual mission: “First, the board is responsible for establishing and maintaining a Web site.” Oh, and second, it’s supposed to “help minimize fraud, waste or mismanagement.”

Corrected paragraph: While Mr. Miller and the panel’s top Republican were there, only Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper, Pennsylvania Democrats, came to the hearing. Absent were Democratic Reps. Steven R. Rothman of New Jersey, Lincoln Davis of Tennessee, Charles A. Wilson of Ohio, Alan Grayson of Florida and Bart Gordon of Tennessee. Republican Rep. Ralph M. Hall of Texas also skipped the session, while Rep. Brian P. Bilbray of California dropped by for the final hour of the nearly three-hour hearing.

Still, to a sparse crowd, Mr. Miller got right to the point. “President Obama promised a level of transparency, through the Internet, Recovery.gov. … How do you intend to provide that level of transparency, to see how – who actually got the contract to pour asphalt?”

“As I mentioned in my testimony,” Mr. Devaney said, “that Web site is evolving. … I would probably be the first to admit today the Web site doesn’t give you that kind of information.”

Dear government, if money isn’t that important to you, then pay my school debts for me. Thanks. Signed, a taxpayer.
