• Hey Kids, Your Economic Recovery Decoder Ring is in the Mail

    73231951I once complained that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act had a lame acronym, but if yesterday's press conference at the Department of Transportation was any indication, this is gonna be the funnest recovery and reinvestment act ever.

    Flanked by his grrrreat TIGER team and some guys with awesome walkie-talkies, the president announced his plan to spend $28 billion on road-building projects, with a little help from his friends…

    [A]s part of his duty, Joe will keep an eye on how precious tax dollars are being spent. To you, he’s Mr. Vice President, but around the White House, we call him the Sheriff —  because if you’re misusing taxpayer money, you’ll have to answer to him.

    And to help him, I’ve appointed a proven and aggressive Inspector General to root out waste and fraud. And I’m also deputizing every single American to visit a new website called Recovery.gov so you can see where your tax dollars are going and hold us accountable for results.

    Cool! I've always wanted to be a deputy! I hope we get badges. But, Mr. President? Next time we play economic recovery?

    Can I be one of the rich guys instead?
