The article reports on the call for a sequel to the 787 billion U.S. dollar Recovery Act passed in February 2010 following reports that unemployment reached 9.5 percent in June 2010. After U.S. Vice President Joe Biden admitted that the administration underestimated the level of recession, Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman is asking President Barack Obama to work on additional stimulus with his political people and economic team. Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and Leader Steny Hoyer agree on getting another plan.
