Spin Control

What’s in it for us?

All this talk about the economic stimulus is mostly in the macro.

$787 billion total, about a third in tax cuts and two thirds in spending.

But what does it mean for Washington or Idaho? There’s a way to find out.

A Web site called Stimulus Watch has a breakdown for each state.

Check out the Washington projects by clicking here. You can even narrow it down to individual cities.

Check out the Idaho projects by clicking here. Breakdown for cities also available, although Coeur d’Alene isn’t singled out.
