Congress passed a $787 billion stimulus package on February 13, 2009. The measure passed in the House with no Republican votes. Three Republican senators, Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe and Arlen Specter joined the Democrats to pass the bill, by a vote of 60-38, in the Senate. President Barack Obama, who originally drafted the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan, signed the bill into law on February 17, 2009.
What I Think
We’re hearing people say that the states should reject any and all money from the economic stimulus package. I join them in that view.
