Obama Signs Stimulus To Jump Start Economic Recovery

"For our plan to succeed, we must stabilize, repair and reform our banking system, and get credit flowing again to families and businesses," Obama said in his radio address this weekend. "We must write and enforce new rules of the road, to stop unscrupulous speculators from undermining our economy ever again. We must stem the spread of foreclosures and do everything we can to help responsible homeowners stay in their homes."

Indeed, next up on his economic recovery agenda, the president will discuss his administration's plans to tackle home foreclosures on Wednesday in Phoenix.

Congress has already scheduled an accountability hearing for March 5 on the stimulus package.

ABC News' Jake Tapper, Z. Byron Wolf, Sunlen Miller and Jonathan Karl contributed to this report.
