    Let's focus on the $100 billion that we have seen in improper spending year over year.

    More than $98 billion in improper gov't payments

    Another reason the government has no business in health care.

    So your saying that because Republican politicians betrayed their conservative beliefs that gives Liberals the right to bitch about the deficit for eights years under a Republican then turn a blind eye once a Demo gets in?

    Where are you getting your numbers from?

    It's called disinformation.

    It's the federal government. Money either went into politicians offshore accounts or into a secretive defense program.

    If it can't be certified don't post it because it is a lie.

    Recovery Board Chairman: We Can’t Certify Jobs Data at Recovery.gov

    November 18, 2009 6:00 AM

    ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: The chairman of the Obama administration’s Recovery Board is telling lawmakers that he can’t certify jobs data posted at the Recovery.gov Web site -- and doesn’t have access to a “master list” of stimulus recipients that have neglected to report data.

    Earl Devaney, the chairman of the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, responded to questions posed by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., late yesterday to say the board can’t vouch for the numbers submitted by recipients of stimulus funding.

    “Your letter specifically asks if I am able to certify that the number of jobs reported as created/saved on Recovery.gov is accurate and auditable. No, I am not able to make this certification,” Devaney wrote, in a letter provided to ABC News.

    Devaney rejected Issa’s suggestion that the site include a more prominent disclaimer, such as an asterisk or a footnote. He said the site already does mention in a note to users that “errors and omissions” are likely.

    Devaney said that while he can’t yet provide a list of all entities that were required to submit information but failed to do so, “I expect to have access to this data shortly.” He also said the board will seek to correct data that proves to be faulty, and is promising “increasingly higher levels of accuracy in the future.”

    The letter comes amid mounting criticism of stimulus figures that have been riddled with errors, undercutting the administration’s claims that stimulus dollars have helped “save or create” 1 million jobs.

    ABC News has reported in recent days that Recovery.gov lists scores of jobs and millions of dollars in spending in congressional districts that do not exist.

    Separately, the administration has slashed more than 60,000 jobs from its most recent report on the program, because the reporting outlets submitted “unrealistic data.”

    This just keeps getting better and better.

    Nah, just pointing out the hypocrisy of all the bitching about a “Democrat President”, coming in and cleaning up the mess left by eight years of …cough,cough, a so called “Republican President” mess, that seems to be the way it is, as usual. After all, it took Clinton eight years to clean the mess of 12 years of Reagan, Bush #1.
