The article focuses on funding set aside for healthcare spending as part of U.S. President Barack Obama's stimulus package. The actual amount allotted for healthcare-related programs is approximately 150 billion U.S. dollars but this includes non-specific ancillary spending. Although some parts of the legislation have been praised, such as increased investment in healthcare information technology, other parts were criticized as short-term fix rather than long-term solutions.
