Map where Congress spends your tax dollar

Now you can see where Uncle Sam is spending your money, as plotted on a map! The Sunlight Foundation released a downloadable Google Earth layer that plots what it says are some 1,500 earmarks attached to a proposed U.S. House of Representatives defense spending bill. The Foundation describes its mission as promoting political transparency through use of Internet technologies.

Interesting indeed. If you don’t have Google Earth, it’s a free program you can downoad here.  Thanks to Quinn Buchanan for bringing this to my attention, and to News.com for reporting the story.
