Hasty Judgment Check: 35 Percent of the Stimulus Is Still Unspent

If you find yourself reading about the effectiveness of Obama's stimulus bill, watching people talk about it on TV, or discussing it with friends, just remember that the jury (and by "jury" I mean $278 billion in tax cuts and spending) is still out.

Most of this remaining money will be spent by the end of 2010. Next year, in 2011, "the economy will lose its training wheels." Hopefully it learns to ride on its own by then.
