GAO Reports — Use of Stimulus Funds And Use of Taxpayer’s Dollars For Auto Bailout

April 23, 2009 at 7:30 pm Leave a comment

As a citzen of this country, I believe it is our responsiblity to monitor and track how the government spends our tax dollars.  In the era of the internet, our ability to engage in independent oversight of government expenditures has never been better.  One of the agencies that does this for Congress is the GAO and GAO provides a copy of the reports to the public on the Internet.

There is huge fights about the stimlus and use of the auto bailout money in Congress, blogsphere, and especially cable news (Olbermann And Maddow Vs O’Reilly, Hannity, And Beck).   The talking heads are full of spin and even if you typically side with one group (I prefer MSNBC because I endorse liberal causes), one has to skeptical that the talking heads are not always telling you truth.

I was looking for a report that deals with my agency.   Instead, I found two reports that deal with the use of stimulus funds and auto bailout.  Since they are consider to be very sensitive political issues, I decided to share the reports with you.    I included link to the full report and another link that provides one to two page summaries of the reports.

Here are the reports.
GAO-09-580 – As Initial Implementation Unfolds in States and Localities, Continued Attention to Accountability Issues Is Essential”
