I’ve Seen More Detail in an Elementary School Book Report

Is it just me, or is the White House’s Recovery.gov “Your Money at Work” website vapid and uninformative?

I know it’s early, but there’s already a lot more information available about where the “stimulus” funds are going than one can glean from this website, which reads like a campaign brochure. That is, nice and pretty sounding, but no specific details. Dressing up the incredibly general line items into just eight expense categories for an expenditure of $787 billion dollars is insulting enough, without giving us the choice of viewing the eight items in balloon or tabular form.

Does the White House think we are so dense, we need two ways of looking at eight line items to be sure we’ve grasped it?
