White House: GOP Will Support Stimulus Bill

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House spokesman says he expects
President Barack Obama will get GOP support for his economic
stimulus package.

But Robert Gibbs didn't say how much.

The presidential spokesman made the comment Tuesday shortly
after Obama met with GOP leaders and their rank and file members on
Capitol Hill in private meetings. Republicans are grousing over the
$825 billion price tag and they say the package doesn't include
enough tax cuts.

Gibbs told reporters at the White House: "I think we will have
Republican support for this bill."

    You mean the Republicans want some tax cuts? Let's see for the rich again surely not for us poor folks. Why can't they allow give us the income tax break and a stimulus check? It should would help out on the high electric bills this month.
