Special Report: Democratic districts receive nearly twice the amount of stimulus funds as GOP districts
A new analysis of the $157 billion distributed by the American Reinvestment and Recovery act, popularly known as the stimulus bill, shows that the funds were distributed without regard for what states were most in need of jobs.
