Congressional Accountability

posted Mar 3, 2017, 12:33 PM by Jeffrey Jones

SpendingTracker.org or 'What's My Congressman's Number? is a new project for spending accountability. 

How it works - 
Members of Congress take dozens of votes, many of which add new spending: What's My Congressman's Number automatically aggregates the new spending contained in each bill, according to official estimates, to each Member of Congress's total "number." For more information about how we arrive at our estimates, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.
