Despite the fact that it is obliged to issue quarterly reports regarding the effects of the stimulus package that was enacted in 2009, the Obama administration is now four reports behind in its compliance with the law. With the election a little over two weeks away, we are missing a year’s worth of reports regarding how effective–or ineffective–the stimulus has been.
Jeffrey Anderson speculates in his article that this is because the stimulus is a giant failure and the administration doesn’t want to let the rest of the public know the extent to which the stimulus has failed. If this is untrue, then the administration should have no compunction about bringing the rest of us up to date.
I mean, if the pundit class could obsess about Mitt Romney’s tax returns, then surely we can all take at least a passing interest in whether the stimulus is working, no?
