Maybe it’s just late and I’m tired, but does the legend match the chart? I’m thinking…..no.

No wonder Obama’s ranting about ” out of control ” insurance costs! It looks like the problem was with the GRANT money. Well, glad that problem’s solved.

Oh, you can see the image for yourself in all it’s glory at http://www.usaspending.gov/. And they’re using google’s url chart builder for the chart. I’m thinking someone transposed some numbers somewhere…..good thing they’re not in charge of spending or any…thing.

Who says the government can’t act quickly? I’d like to think that they discovered this problem on their own and corrected it but the conspiratorial side of me thinks that there’s probably some giant ‘wargames’ style room where any blogpost mentioning the us government gets thrown on one of the giant monitor screens and analyzed immediately.  🙂
