Your tax dollars at work: Bike paths & beautification (plus more logo-mania!)

Have you checked Recovery.gov lately? No need to ask Joe Biden for the, uh, website number. Here’s the link to a chart currently featured on the front page.

It informs you that $799 million of the porkulus money will be spent on “mandatory transportation enhancements.” The website explains: “‘Enhancement’ is a legally defined term for projects such as sidewalk repairs, bicycle paths, and beautification projects. Enhancements do not involve vehicle or mass transit related items.”

Yup, bike paths and beautification. Your federal tax dollars at work.
