The second meeting of the Middle Class Task Force, dealing with the Recovery Act and the middle class, concluded this afternoon.

The Recovery Act is primarily focused on providing a foundation for the long-term health of the middle class and providing a structure for the middle class to be a full stakeholder in the economy’s success again.
