£572bn Package Passed By House Of Representatives

US House passes stimulus package

The US House of Representatives has passed President Barack Obama's $819bn (£572bn) economic stimulus package. Passed by 244 votes to 188, no Republicans backed the plan, saying it was too expensive and would not work. The Senate debates the plan next week, and it could face stiff opposition as the Democrats have a slimmer majority.
