Even though President Barack Obama launched the $787 billion stimulus bill to bring the economy out of the recession, Americans now feel that it did not help.
A new Gallup Poll finds that most Americans do not think the stimulus bill helped.
57 percent of those polled said it had no impact on the economy or made it worse.
And 60 percent said they doubt it will help the economy in the years ahead.
A majority of economists now say the downturn in the economy is ending, even though only a little of the stimulus money has been spent.
"This is a wake-up call for the administration." said House Minority Whip Eric Cantor R-Va. "People see the stimulus hasn't worked, and now you want to lay on over $1 trillion in a health care plan."
Meanwhile, the stock market may be headed for its first serious correction in more than a month, after world markets dropped sharply on Monday.
