I was hoping that he would get stimuli into place for massive development of alternative energy technologies and the high-speed rail system - which would create hundreds of thousands of jobs at all levels when fully implemented.
There are funds for light rail and for hugher speed rail in the stimulus package. That's being implemented.

The stimulus package has been a huge success. That economists could be debating whether the recession is over means that we are in a far better place now than when the stimulus bill was oassed.
