The Trump administration’s treasury has started a website so that taxpayers can find out how the government is spending money.
Anyone can track government spending using the site Beta.USAspending.gov, making the treasury more transparent than ever before.
“The new site provides taxpayers with the ability to track nearly $4 trillion in government spending from Washington, D.C. directly into their communities and cities,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said. “Furthermore, greater access to data will drive better decision making and strengthen accountability and transparency – qualities central to the Administration’s focus on a more innovative and effective government.”
The Daily Caller reports:
The site, “Beta.USAspending.gov,” allows users to track federal spending by location, keyword, or federal agency. It also allows people to search by recipient.
The release of this site, which is a new version of USAspending.gov, was mandated by the 2014 Digital Accountability and Transparency ACT. The website will be updated quarterly.
If you’ve ever wondered where the government is really using your taxpayer dollars, this is your chance to find out.
