Obama first video address tops YouTube
Listed as the most viewed video of the day on YouTube. Obama’s first weekly address (now a video rather than radio address) to the nation outlines his recovery spending plan for the nation. Pending the passage of the bill, details and updates on the program will be found at the new Recovery.gov website.
Highlights of the program include a 3-year plan to double alternative energy production, three thousand miles of new power lines (I suspect many of those will be from the new distributed power sources), energy efficiencies for federal buildings and weatherizing 2.5 million homes. There is a 5-year plan to computerize medial records, and a stopgap measure for healthcare coverage of the newly unemployed.
Everything is available from The White House website. Remember: if it’s created by the US government, it’s either classified or it’s public domain.
