Isn't it time you got to see it all?
Every dime of United States Government spending from 2000-2011...
ON THURSDAY, IT'S TIME!
Open The Books- United States Government Checkbook
To search government spending, citizens should be able to "google it". If government taxes it and spends it, then we should get to see it- online.
Last week in Washington DC, I met with 15 of the top think tanks, action tanks and public policy groups. For the trillions spent by government, the hundreds of millions by think tanks and campaigns, no-one thought to give the people line-by-line access to the federal checkbook.
But, we did! And, some very smart people loved it...
Tomorrow, we go "beyond google government." It's a game changer!
For the first time in history, we don't have to vent blindly into the darkness. All of us will have specific, detailed information on exactly where our federal tax dollars are spent: contracts, loans, direct payments, insurance payments, and grants. Plus, four years of all farm subsidies and five year salary histories of most federal employees.
We worked around the clock for nine months on this project. And, completed it just in time...
Touch fast and "hyper-localizing" all disclosed federal spending, you can see "every dime" spent in your backyard, your zip code, by vendor or any locale across the country.
The most common response, "I'm in the wrong business."
As our nation grapples with budget, spending and the concept of "sequester", our technology "localizes" all spending... and it's completely mindboggling.< /div>
