They are showing how they do so many things to try to keep him happy but they are saying that since we do all this stuff for him, why doesn’t he like congress. Recent Article about Congress The US Congress, handing President Barack Obama a major legislative victory, approved on Friday a $787 billion stimulus bill that aims to rush emergency government spending and tax cuts to a nation in the grip of recession.
The Senate cast the final vote, 60-38, hours after the House of Representatives passed an identical bill, 246-183. The action capped weeks of arguing over how Congress could best stimulate an economy suffering a rising jobless rate of 7.6% and a banking crisis that has nearly frozen lending.
“It will not fix our problems overnight,” Daniel Inouye, a Hawaii Democrat, said shortly before the final vote began on the measure, closely watched by financial markets and governments around the world. But Inouye added, “It will begin the process ... it will give America confidence that we can overcome this crisis.”
