Sen. Hutchison Vows To Fight Obama Stimulus

=

Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson, Republican of Texas, said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that she wanted cuts to the bill's "social spending provisions" that total about $200 billion in the bill. Additional tax cuts, Ms. Hutchinson and other Republicans said, would be more effective than large-scale government spending programs.

HUTCHISON: "The whole idea is to stimulate the economy immediately," she said. "I think we can do it more effectively with less money. Let's do something timely, temporary and targeted, and do it on an overwhelmingly bipartisan basis. It still can be done."
