31 Days 31 Reasons: Reason #3 - Google for Government

Google for Government. Check out www.usaspending.gov. From the press release on Senator Obama's Senate website:

"It's a good-government measure designed to give journalists and average citizens access to budget secrets Washington insiders now try to hide, like that notorious "earmark" done late at night authorizing hundreds of millions of dollars for a bridge to a virtually uninhabited island up in Alaska, the so-called Bridge to Nowhere."

This was the first bill passed by Senator Obama which was co-sponsored by Senator Coborn (R-OK). It just makes sense to see where your money is going and be able to call your Senator or Congressman to raise hell if you don't like it.
