Enterprise/Salt Lake City;2/23/2009, Vol. 38 Issue 35, p19
The author focuses on the impacts of the signing of the U.S. economic stimulus bill into law in February 2009. The bill was presented with inconsistency as the U.S. Congress was in haste with the passing of a bill, said the author. It is stated that supporters of President Barack Obama remain faithful to him despite the inconsistency. Amateurism among the Cabinet officials has been evident as they withdraw before their nominations, added the author.
