I appreciate that Obama is trying to be as transparent as possible. Citizens deserve to know where their money is going and how government is being run. Obama collaborated with republican Tom Coburn to introduce new legislation known as the "The Strengthening Transparency and Accountability in Federal Spending Act of 2008."

"The new bill would build upon and improve previous efforts by Senators Obama and Coburn to provide public access to federal grant and contract information through the USASpending.gov web site. Among other things, it would require copies of each federal contract and details of the bidding process to be published online."


In the spirit of full disclosure: I voted for Obama in the primaries and I will be voting for him come November.
