Biden to Discuss Stimulus Package With Issa

The Obama administration sits in grave fear of investigations House Republicans could launch over its policies in the new Congress. So it’s no wonder that Vice President Joe Biden has made plans for a meeting with incoming House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (pictured) to discuss the 2009 economic fiscal stimulus package, which totaled $862 billion, Politico reports.

Issa maintains that inspectors general at federal agencies should have subpoena power to give them more leverage in looking into charges of abuse in government spending.
