600,000 Jobs on the Road to Recovery

Summary: 
It’s been a little over 100 days since the Recovery Act was signed by the President.
It’s been a little over 100 days since the Recovery Act was signed by the President.  We’ve come a long way –- we’ve created or saved over 150,000 jobs, cut taxes for 95 percent of working families, and made funds available for over 4,000 transportation projects.  But while we’ve made progress, we still have a lot more work to do on this road to recovery.
To accelerate our recovery efforts, the Vice President announced the Roadmap to Recovery, ten major projects that will keep more teachers in the classroom, put more cops on our streets, and give more people access to healthcare over the next 100 days.
 
As the Vice President says, "It’s going to be a busy summer!"  We’ll be revving up the recovery engine getting more dollars out the door and more money into the pockets of working families who need it most.  And most importantly, by the end of the summer, we’ll have created or saved another 600,000 American jobs.
 
Along the way, we’ll be telling the stories of recovery in your community.  Share your photos, videos or comments about recovery projects happening in your neighborhood.  We’ll be highlighting some of your submissions here on the Recovery blog.
 
While WhiteHouse.gov/Recovery will be the place where our story of Recovery is told, you can always go to Recovery.gov to make sure your recovery dollars are going where they should: jobs, jobs, jobs.
