ABSTRACT
The author suggests that U.S. President Barack Obama should recast the debate surrounding the economic stimulus package bill by reaffirming his commitment to long-term fiscal discipline. He cites one veteran Democratic as admitting that Democrats seem to be losing the framing of what the economic stimulus bill is. The economic stimulus plan of Obama directs funds toward both short-term stimulus, such as tax cuts and payments to states and long-term investment in health care, energy, education and infrastructure.
