President Barack Obama is making government spending more transparent by launching a new website called Recovery.gov. The website complements Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan. The goals of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan include laying out 3,000 miles of transmission lines, weatherizing 2.5 million homes, protect health insurance for 8 million Americans at risk of losing coverage, securing 90 major ports, renovating 10,000 schools, and tripling the number of science fellowships.
Obama stated that the government will be held accountable for results and money won’t be just thrown a problems. Investments will be made in what works and will be made public on the website.
