For the first time in history, you can finally follow where nearly all taxpayer money was spent. Our innovative new Chatbot, “Benjamin,” named after Benjamin Franklin, launches today.
Benjamin makes it easy to search that treasure-trove of government spending. You can follow the money by answering three simple questions and entering a keyword or name. The service is free.
In minutes, at your kitchen table, or at a graduate seminar in a public policy, for a speech at your school board or testimony before your City Council, nearly all government payrolls and vendor checkbooks – federal, state, and local – are available on your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
It’s time to follow the money, America. As of today, Benjamin is here to help. Give him a try!
