Obama's policy

President Obama wasted no time differentiating his administration from his predecessor’s. His inaugural address on January 20, 2009, contained a number of references to the break from Bush’s policies, and if there was any doubt, his first executive orders dispelled them. In his first few days in office, Obama ordered the closing of the Guantánamo Bay detention facility and an end to interrogation practices by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that many deemed a form of torture or at the very least a violation of U.S. and international law. He took a number of other measures that rescinded Bush policies on the environment, reproductive rights, and scientific research. The first piece of legislation Obama signed expanded the rights of women to sue for wage discrimination.

Obama’s overriding concern, however, was passage of a bill to stimulate the economy and end a recession that began in December 2007. The economic downturn loomed as the worst since the 1980s as unemployment rose above 7 percent. Obama worked closely with Congress to pass a stimulus bill that promised to create jobs and cut taxes with massive government spending estimated at more than $800 billion.
