Apparently, this is “map day” on News Cut.
Vice President Joe Biden is out with another stimulus update, this time it’s called “Roadmap to Recovery,” that documents projects that have been funded to date.
The accompanying map — above — shows how heavily the Democrats’ stimulus plan relies on military spending. They’re the green dots. (Update: And, the Justice Department are also green dots. A News Cut reader with better ability to differentiate shades notes the projects may be directed to police departments)
