Biden proclaims the “success” of the stimulus package.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden proclaimed success beyond expectations Thursday for the $787 billion economic stimulus, but his glowing assessment overlooks many of the program’s problems, including delays in releasing money, questionable spending priorities and project picks that are under investigation.

“The Recovery Act is doing more, faster and more efficiently and more effectively than most people expected,” he said.

In a speech aimed squarely at Republican criticism and public skepticism over the costly program’s effectiveness, Biden said accomplishments over the past 100 days provide proof of promises kept when he and President Barack Obama began rolling out the plan earlier this year.
