House Pushes Through Second Stimulus Plan

Ad Feedback

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.
