The article focuses on the effort of U.S. President Barack Obama to get his stimulus plan approved by Congress.

Obama has promised that his stimulus package, now at $838 billion, will salvage four million jobs. Of increased concern to average Americans is to what degree the package will impact their lives, and how much they can expect to trickle down to them after going through a maze of bureaucracy.
