Economic Recovery Bill Passes
President Obama will sign the Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Act into law today. Thanks to your efforts, the bill is a much more liberal approach to dealing with the economic crisis. It includes provisions for food stamps, unemployment, state aid, education, and invests heavily in new energy and infrastructure. The bill's tax cuts are also structured progressively. Give yourselves a pat on the back for producing tens of thousands of calls and emails to Congress in support of this bill.
