Barack Obama: Statement by the President-Elect on an American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan
I am pleased that the House of Representatives has acted with urgency on an American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan that will save or create over three million jobs, provide tax relief to struggling families and businesses that create jobs, and invest in priorities like health care, education, and energy that will make America strong and competitive in the 21st century. This plan is a significant downpayment on our most urgent challenges, and it will contain the kind of strict, independent oversight that will allow the American people to hold Washington accountable for how and where their tax dollars are spent.Citation: Barack Obama: "Statement by the President-Elect on an American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan," January 15, 2009.
