President travels in defense of stimulus plan

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama heads to Indiana today to tout the benefits of his stimulus plan amid signs the recession may be ending.

The president's stop in the Elkhart area -- hard hit by the collapse in RV sales -- is part of a full-throated defense of the stimulus package.

While critics say the spending push has done little, Obama says it's helped families and saved jobs.

Unease over the spending is one reason Obama's poll numbers on the economy have been sliding.

Vice President Joe Biden and Cabinet chiefs are also on the road today with a similar message, even as the administration braces for employment figures tomorrow that could see the jobless rate top 10 percent.
