This means that at least a few Democrats had to join the Republicans in opposition to it. Congratulations to them all.
Obama’s not going to let it go that easy though. Like a lion trying to pick off the young and weak from the herd, he’s meeting one on one with some of the more moderate Republicans.
Also, someone better let Obama know that one percent of a trillion dollars is still a lot of money:
President Obama said, "The overwhelming bulk of the package is sound, is designed to put people back to work. ...Most of the programs that have been criticized, as part of this package amount to less than one percent of the overall package."
