    Senate passes Obama's economic recovery plan

    Just three Republicans helped pass the plan on a 61-37 vote and they're already signaling they'll play hardball to preserve more than $108 billion in spending cuts made last week in Senate dealmaking. Obama wants to restore cuts in funds for school construction jobs and help for cash-starved states.

    Looks like it is moving forward. I hope Obama knows the outcome of this plan will be a direct reflection on him as a leader.

    God help us all.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    And as the market eventually self corrects, the democrats will be there to claim victory.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Re: Senate passes Obama's economic recovery plan

    He seems VERY confident that his economic stimulus plan will work people. He will take up all responsibility for its failure or success. Its a risk, but he is very confident nonetheless. So he must be doing something right guys?
    Geez give the guy some slack.

    And you bastards better get out of reccession soon!! Cause for the global recovery process to begin, we are going to need the US to be strong and ready. I believe America's recovery will be the foundations for Europe's recovery. In other words, the worlds economy rests on your shoulders mr obama.

    Due to the hyper-bipartisanship we face today it seems unfathomable that each party could thank each other for working together in avoiding a depression. No, we need to focus on ways to point out the negatives of one party over the other.

    Economic support issue polls are always low due to the fact that a majority of the country doesn't understand a damn thing about how to stimulate a failing economy.

    They think saving and not spending money is what you do when an economy is falling.
