‘Ludicrous Mistakes’ on Stimulus Site

The White House is being blasted for reports that Recovery.gov, which tracks stimulus spending and job creation, shows figures for jobs and spending in nonexistent congressional districts. The revelation of errors on the site comes after the administration dropped 60,000 from its previous figures on jobs created by stimulus spending thanks to "unrealistic data." For one, Wisconsin Democrat and House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey is demanding fixes to the "ludicrous mistakes" plaguing the site: "The administration owes itself, the Congress and every American a commitment to work night and day to correct [the errors].”
