Stimulus Watch: House and Senate Reach Deal!

The House and Senate have reached a compromise on the stimulus bill. Senate Majority Leader Reid says that the compromise bill costs less than the House Bill, but creates more jobs than the Senate bill, and we get it all at the low, low price of $789 Billion!

Now both houses have to vote on the bill again. If the Republican centrist Senators Collins, Snowe, and Specter keep voting with the Democrats, we'll have a stimulus law before too long.

What would you buy with that $800 billion? If you want to know more about what President Obama would buy, Come to the super special Smith Dems Stimulus Meeting next Monday.

Smith Econ professor Roisin O'Sullivan will be there to help walk you through the finer points of the stimulus. For those of you who attended "What the Wall Street?" discussion on the bailout, this is the same wonderful prof who led that.

Next Monday, 7 PM in CC 103.
