In a cabinet meeting, Obama said, "I'm pleased to know that having put the infrastructure in place, having gotten your teams up and running, many of the criteria by which money is going out in a responsible way that protects taxpayers, having been created. Now we're in a position to really accelerate. So the goal here is that we're going to create or save 600,000 jobs over the next 100 days."
"We have a long way to go on our road to recovery but we are going the right way," Obama added.
Joseph Biden, vice president said, "We've laid a good foundation in the first 100 days of the Recovery Act and in the next 100 we plan to build on that foundation and accelerate our efforts so we can accomplish even more."
