Signed into law. This part is particularly important:
Today does not mark the end of our economic troubles. Nor does it constitute all of what we must do to turn our economy around. But it does mark the beginning of the end - the beginning of what we need to do to create jobs for Americans scrambling in the wake of layoffs; to provide relief for families worried they won't be able to pay next month's bills; and to set our economy on a firmer foundation, paving the way to long-term growth and prosperity.
Well said, and even more bad ass, you can follow what gets spent where on

As frustrated as I was with how the bill turned out compared how it could have been, it's still vital that it passed as soon as possible.

This is also a huge political victory for Obama, who ended up singing a bill extremely close to the one he requested.


  1. pretty much bad luck for Barack that the economic collapse occurred exactly when it did, because it forced his first major course of action. on the other hand, maybe since he didn't have to dive headlong into ending the wars, he'll be able to move towards that with more public support than if it was his first act.

  2. Read the bill, and do a text search of "$"...its amusing
