Millions of federal dollars meant to stimulate the economy have also been spent on signs posted at stimulus-funded construction sites across the nation. The signs praise how the stimulus money has been spent.
Those signs touting the stimulus cost $3,000 a piece in New Jersey. Local officials said the same amount of money could have been spent to repair at least 60 potholes.
"Signs tell a story and the story being told is hard earned taxpayer dollars are being spent to rebuild roads, resurface roads, resurface bridges," said Transportation Secretary Ray Lahood.
"The folks who support the stimulus package, basically this administration, want to get out there and blow their own horn with tax payers money," said Sen. Judd Gregg, R-NH. "I mean, they have a lot of campaign money. Why don't they use the campaign money?"
The White House said it is about to spend $18 million to revamp its stimulus website.
