Bush Bashes Senate For Stalling Stimulus Package

President Bush held a press conference just now in which he bashed the Senate for stalling the stimulus package:

“Whatever the senate does they should not delay this package. They should not keep money out of your pocket, the sooner you get a check, the more likely it is that the stimulus package will kick in and make a difference. So my attitude is if that if you’re truly interested in dealing with the slowdown in the economy—the Senate ought to accept the House package, pass it, and get it to my desk as soon as possible.”
