ABSTRACT
The article discusses efforts by the U.S. government and Congress to spur job creation. In 2009 President Barack Obama signed into law a $787 billion economic stimulus that enjoyed almost no Republican support in Congress. Later that year Democrats in the House of Representatives passed the $154 billion Jobs for Main Street Act. In the face of Republican opposition, though, Senator Harry Reid said the Senate would consider a smaller measure.
