President-elect Promotes Ideas for Stimulus Package

President-elect Barack Obama recently met with Congressional leadership to discuss plans for the economic stimulus package. While some policymakers believe that Congress will complete legislation for this plan by mid-February, the President-elect and his staff have publicly urged Congressional leadership to produce a package by late January to provide more immediate relief.

While the President-elect seeks a bipartisan measure, he has advocated for many specific provisions including those that promote job creation, tax cuts and funding for states to cover Medicaid costs.

The Washington Post published an article on this crucial matter earlier today.

Meanwhile, the most recent version of the Obama-Biden Stimulus Plan can be found here on the Obama transition Web site.
