Your Economic Stimulus

It’s Saturday, February 14, 2009. Here is what we’re looking at:

The economic stimulus bill passed the Senate last night 60-38. The vote lasted several hours in order for Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) to fly back to Washington from his mother’s wake and cast the critical 60th vote.

President Barack Obama gives his weekly address and speaks about the stimulus package.

Politico interviews several economists on the outlook of the stimulus plan - despite GOP reservations this week, the experts expect it to be generally stimulating.

What exactly can you all find in the stimulus bill? The AP breaks it down.

Finally, a sign of the times: Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke’s childhood home has been sold after foreclosure.

Have a Happy Valentine's Day!
