The actual contracts used in the implementation of the incoming Obama Administration's massive economic stimulus plan will be available to the public online - that's what Peter Orszag, the nominee for Office of Management and Budget chief, told the Senate government affairs committee today. According to TPM's Elana Schor, Orszag told the committee:
We plan to create a Web site that will contain information about the contracts and include PDFs or contracts themselves, and also financial information about the contracts.
Which prompted Senator Joe Lieberman's priceless rejoinder: "Define PDFs."
Maybe he and Ted Stevens went to the same briefings about how stuff works.
