A Roadmap to Recovery

|  June 08, 2009 |

Vice President Joe Biden is presenting to President Barack Obama the Roadmap to Recovery at today’s Cabinet meeting.

The Roadmap is an Administration-wide effort to accelerate implementation of the stimulus act in its second 100 days.  The White House says the Roadmap spotlights 10 new major projects that will define the next three months of the Recovery Act and provides graphical illustrations of the activity that will be underway across the United States. 

Supposedly more than 600,000 jobs are expected to be created or saved by the Recovery Act in the second 100 days – four times the number created or saved in the first 100 days, according to the White House.

I’m glad to hear that jobs will be saved or created. But it still doesn’t solve the problem of who’s going to pay for the nearly trillion dollars spent for the recovery effort. I wonder when we’ll see a roadmap for that?
