"We do not have time to wait."

Not much more to report from the Larry Summers press conference call, aside from his urgent tone (see the title of this post). 

Summers basically offered up the same talking points outlined in my previous post. He emphasized "the committment on both the tax side and the expenditure side...toward renewables," referring to the much-hyped green energy component of the stimulus bill. When asked how certain he is that Congress will pass the controversial package, he responded: "I believe this bill is imperative for our economic security and I've got great confidence that in our country we do the right thing."
