Big speech trying to justify his stimulus package Obama had today, but that is not the most important thing that he has achieved, maybe for his whole presidency even if he serves two terms.
The most important factor is the introduction of open government, people can track where the money will be spent. The records will be available, hopefully if the books balance people will be too afraid to overpay themselves, buy toilet seats for 500 dollars, open government, that is a landmark, how come nobody even mentions that on the news networks, like CNN, BBC. This is a break through for freedom and a government being accountable to the people.
Stimulus package not as important as the principle of an open government, where people can see government books.
