The article examines the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which is a U.S. federal stimulus bill that was enacted by the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama. It attests that districts associated with the nation’s Democratic Party received significantly more funds than those associated with the Republican Party, and that the districts of Democrats who were reelected in 2010 received even more money than the others. A chart depicting these assertions is presented.
