Money, money, money

I am hopeful that the Obama administration is on the right track with the stimulus package. There are hopeful signs that they will not repeat the mistakes of the Bush administration and the dumbocratic Congress that just seem to throw money at the problem. Here is the money quote from today's Washington Post:"In the meantime, Obama said he will incorporate a trio of provisions in the nearly $800 billion stimulus package under review by Congress -- dubbed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act -- to ensure that the money is not wasted. The provisions include establishing a special panel to monitor use of the money; a Web site that will allow taxpayers to monitor use of the money; and a ban on lawmakers' pet projects, known as earmarks."
To me this is a good policy let's hope it's not "just words".
