Very helpful website for finding out what exactly is in the Economic Stimulus Plan, "following the money from bills to building." Really helps make sense of the senseless! =D>

Ah ha! My diabolical plan worked! Plant the link enticing Aaron with pretty charts so he will pore over all that information and boil it down into a chart I can more readily absorb and understand. :grin:

Can't wait! Thanks in advance, Aaron!
