Obama administration is spending $18 million on a website to promote the stimulus

The Obama administration is spending $18 million in stimulus money on a website to promote the stimulus. In spite of a $1.8 trillion deficit and 9.5% unemployment, President Obama is happy with the stimulus. Obama is hoping you will be happy to after reading the propaganda posted at

From The Note:
Klein ABC News’ Rick Klein reports: For those concerned about stimulus spending, the General Services Administration sends word tonight that $18 million in additional funds are being spent to redesign the Web site.

The new Web site promises to give taxpayers more information about where their money is going than the current version of the site.

“ 2.0 will use innovative and interactive technologies to help taxpayers see where their dollars are being spent,” James A. Williams, commissioner of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, says in a press release announcing the contract awarded to Maryland-based Smartronix Inc. “Armed with easy access to this information, taxpayers can make government more accountable for its decisions.”

The contract calls for spending $9.5 million through January, and as much as $18 million through 2014, according to the GSA press release.

Here is a Republican ad mocking Obama on the stimulus.
