The Final Score On Stimulus Speed

For those keeping score, the CBO says the final version of the stimulus pays out about 74 percent of its benefits this fiscal year or next, pretty much where Peter Orszag said it would end up. Unfortunately, the $70 billion AMT fix accounts for a big chunk of that percentage. But you've obviously got to blame the GOP for that one, not Orszag.
