WASHINGTON - The Senate struggled Friday to craft a huge stimulus package to revive the battered economy, with moderates trying to trim the $937 billion price tag to attract Republican senators who say it is too costly.
The cost has ratcheted up during five days of Senate debate, and a bipartisan group of senators tried to cut the package by up to $100 billion.
The Senate has managed to add everything to this package and then some. Do you believe this? President Obama calls the delays in working out a deal "inexcusable."
Both sides of the aisle have added pork to this package and no one wants to do the right thing.
