Track Federal Spending With Government Search Engine

Andy Beal spotted an AP article named Senate backs online search of spending. Yes, the Senate wants to make it easier for normal users to track what the US Government is spending taxpayers money on. The example search given is that, “one could type in “Boeing” to find contracts awarded to the aerospace company or “breast cancer research” to see efforts to battle one of the leading killers of women.” Andy asks, why not just have Google do it for the government, since they already know a lot more than the government does anyway? :)
