    Biden: Stimulus to 'drop-kick' US out of recession
    1 hour ago

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that the Obama administration's stimulus program is designed to "drop-kick" the economy out of its deep recession, declaring he is determined to ensure the $787 billion "gets out the door quickly and wisely."

    Meeting with top members of President Barack Obama's Cabinet, Biden warned that he plans to use "the moral approbation of this office" to make sure the huge fund of stimulus money is put to use creating jobs and rebuilding American infrastructure.

    Peter Orszag, the president's budget director, sitting to Biden's right in the White House Roosevelt room on Wednesday, said he intends to insure that Americans know how the money is being spent through the recovery. gov Web site, which he said already is receiving some 3,000 hits each second.

    And Earl Devaney, the newly named chairman of stimulus plan accountability board, disclosed he will push each of the 50 states to name a watchdog to oversee spending. (Yeah, government overseeing government..THAT really works. LOL)

    Anyone else noticing how BIG this Obama team is growing? Very scary.

    I wonder how many of these so-called 'watchdogs' will have to bow out after their own tax frauds come to light....

      Yeah!
      This whole "accountability" thing should include a page on one of these new public websites where we can see the personal tax documents (less SS numbers and addresses of course) of ALL federal and local elected and appointed officials.
      it seems to me that several of those that have "forgotten" to pay, have now paid. I'd like to see evidence also of fines paid (you know...the fines that WE would have to pay if WE "forgot").
