President's Plan if Stimulus Fails in Practice: Another Stimulus Bill

Washington D.C.- In what is being called a "plan B" for the Obama administration, the President has revealed that, should the current Stimulus Bill pass the Congress but turn out to be a failure in practice, he will support a new Stimulus Bill.

"We cannot afford to sit and twiddle our thumbs as our economy flounders," Obama said in front a large crowd in Nashville, Tennessee. "We can watch, we can hope, but if the Stimulus Bill that I now support in Congress fails to produce results on our nation, we must take action."

The President then revealed an "unexpected" stimulus plan that could cost upwards of 950 billion dollars. This bill aims extensively at curbing health care costs for people who make less than $45,000 a year and aims to help the unemployed pay their mortgage.

"This shows that President Obama is ready should our country need help," said Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar. "Let me put it this way: you have a car that's running out of gas. So you fill it up, right? That is the equivalent of the current Stimulus Bill. But what if you don't have enough gas to get where your going? That's when you fill it up again, and that is what the President is planning to do with this new bill."
