Andrew Sherrill talked about federal government spending on jobs programs, and he responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. The federal government spends about $18 billion annually on 47 job training programs, three of which were created by funds from the 2009 economic stimulus. The Government Accountability Office found that all but three programs overlap with others and that the government does not measure a program’s effectiveness.

This program is part of C-SPAN’s “Your Money” series, which looks at how taxpayer dollars are spent. Most Monday mornings, some of the last hour of “Washington Journal” is devoted to a federal program, focusing on its mission, participants, and cost. close
