Washington Post's Graphic of Stimulus Spending

There is no way to understand the spending provisions of the 2nd round of "stimulus" (a misnomer at best). Here the best overviewwe could find concerning where the money is going.

"Taking Apart the $819 billion Stimulus Package
The centerpiece of President Obama's domestic agenda is an $819 billion economic stimulus plan. The Senate will consider the measure this week, with an eye toward the amount of tax cuts and spending. Republicans and Democrats spar over what to consider a tax cut. An analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office tallies the tax-cut portion to be significantly less than the one-third Democrats claim it to be."
