The HOUSE just passed the economic stimulus plan 244-188 as not one Republican voted for the bill. Wow, what a shock. Giving the Boehner's all that bipartisan love really served President Obama well.

The stimulus package passed by a vote of 244-188. Eleven Democrats voted against the measure, while no Republicans supported it. With unemployment at its highest level in a quarter-century, the banking industry wobbling despite the infusion of staggering sums of bailout money and states struggling with budget crises, Democrats said the legislation was desperately needed.
