It's fast becoming the rallying cry for aggressive financial transparency across America. The results aren't pretty...
Aren't you tired of government waste? 
Watch our video here and learn how to stop them!
Dr. Tom Coburn is our Honorary Chairman
We are posting 'every dime, online, in real time' - that's every dollar taxed and spent at every level of government across America! 
So far, we've had a ton of success with over 2.5 billion captured expenditures, making us the world's largest private repository of U.S. state, local, and federal government spending.  
We knew the the politicians would go crazy if we posted online every nickel and dollar they've been wasting, so that's exactly what we're doing.
The opportunities for oversight are endless...
Stop government waste and abuse!
We 'opened the books' - and look what we found so far: 
  • Rev. Louis Farrakhan received over $300,000 of farm subsidies at his home in Chicago, IL.  
  • $200 million in Small Business Administration loans flowed to private clubs including swim clubs, beach clubs, gun clubs, golf clubs, and boat clubs across America. 
  • Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel received $7 million in campaign cash from 600 city vendors - who have received $2 billion in city payments. 
  • The VA added over 24,000 new employees since the scandal - but less than 1 in 12 were doctors. Yet, wait-times for veterans to see a doctor remain at all-time highs. 
  • The EPA has a budget larger than eight states including spending nearly $100 million on upscale furniture, $715 million on their Criminal Enforcement Program, $1.1 billion on lawyers, etc. 
  • Welcome to the 2nd Largest Public Relations Firm in the World: The U.S. Government.  We found the feds spent $4.35 billion on PR since 2007. 
But, we need your help to do more...
