No one has seen the final text of the stimulus package legislation yet. The Democrats probably won't follow through on their promise to post bill texts online at least 48 hours before a vote, probably because they want to meet the somewhat artificial deadline imposed by the White House. Rumors abound about what's in the bill and what's not; some say retroactive executive compensation restrictions are in, others say they're out. There is always a tension between transparency and efficiency. Democrats, in this case, are choosing the latter value.
