“Makin a Difrn: A Snas  Rr
Across America, recovery is under way. From the new State o Maine Ferry to a community health centerin Mississippi, rom classrooms in Florida to the Willamette River Bridge in Washington — we are usingthe Recovery Act to jump-start our economy today, while building a new oundation or the sustainedeconomic growth o tomorrow.In the rst 100 days since President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act intolaw, we have obligated more than $112 billion, created more than 150,000 jobs and helped communi-ties and tribes in every state and territory. But recovery is more than just a compilation o statistics; it’sthe return o hope and optimism about the uture that comes with making lie better or communitiesand amilies across the country. And it’s proo o Americas vast capacity to create real progress in theshort term as we emerge rom an economic crisis that was years in the making.Progress comes in dierent ways. The Recovery Act provides direct help to individuals, unding or spe-cic projects and investments in the growth industries o the 21st century. Help or individuals includesthe $250 supplemental Social Security payments to seniors released earlier this month; the extensiono COBRA and unemployment benets or those who have been laid o; and the Making Work Pay taxcredit, which increased the take-home pay o 95 percent o working Americans.As our team has traveled across the country, we have put a spotlight on the job-creating power o theRecovery act with workers at a transormer plant in Missouri and a windows actory in Illinois; with policeacademy graduates in Ohio, and with members o our armed orces in Caliornia. We saw actories beingreopened, highways being repaved, and bridges being rebuilt. This report details those travels andpaints an exciting picture o an America bouncing back — and looking orward.We’ve done a lot in 100 days. But we know there is much still to do. We have asked the Federal agenciesinvolved in Recovery to make commitments as to what they will accomplish with Recovery unding overthe next 100 days. We will present those commitments to you soon as a “Roadmap or Recovery.Youknow, as we do, that the road to ull recovery will be long and not always smooth. But we also knowthat, working together, there is no doubt that we will reach the end o that road. When we do, Americawill better and stronger than ever.
