The package includes working class tax cuts, infastructure spending, help for the poor and unemployed and investments in alternative energy. Obama said he would not pretend that the plot would turn the economy around, but said it marks the beginning of an end to the country’s financial troubles. He also said the legislation will save or make 3.5 million jobs over the next two years. But, Republicans say it will fall small of making the promised level of new jobs and is also full of pork-barrel spending. The White House says it will take about a month for the money to start flowing. Afghanistan may soon be seeing more American troops. President Obama ordered 17 thousand more soldiers and Marines to that country this week that’s dual the number of Americans there now. He described his choice as an urgent go to soothe a deteriorating and neglected country. But, neighboring Kyrgzstan dealt a potential blow to the US military efforts in Afghanistan today. That country voted to close the last remaining US air base in Central Asia a base that’s used frequently for troops and supplies heading into Afghanistan. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded saying that Kyrgstan’s choice won’t affect military efforts overseas. Obama introduced a regime plot this week
