President Obama's Democratic allies in the U.S. House of Representatives have pushed through a second stimulus plan.
This measure also adds to the ballooning deficit spending.
It includes about $50 billion for public works projects and about $50 billion more for state and local governments.
The unemployed would get continued benefits.
Noticeably missing were Obama's recently announced plans to give $250 to Social Security recipients, and a tax credit for small businesses that create jobs.
Every Republican voted against the plan, along with almost 40 Democrats.
The bill now goes to the Senate.
