Just know your money is being put to good use.
Stimulus bill expenditures:
$100,000 for doorbells.
$600,000,000 for nature trails.
$500,000 for a dog park
$386,000,000 for a convention center hotel in Dallas (my backyard), yay for local pork (at $100,000 per job created, it's one of the cheaper line items though).
$500,000,000 for solar water heaters in Puerto Rico.
$2,463,000,000 for 10 miles of transit line in Miami, creating a whopping 400 jobs ($6,000,000 per job...I want one of those).
$500,000,000 for SHRA...aka ACORN pork. Obama gives back.
$16,000,000 for a flood control system in Hartford...a real live infrastructure project, wow. And it's relatively cheap.
$532,000,000 for a 100MW solar power plant in New Mexico ($5.32 million per megawatt vs. $1.75 million per megawatt for coal, actually not too bad)
$950,000,000 for a bridge replacement on I -74. A billion dollars for a bridge?
