Senate Works on Stimulus as Economy Sheds Jobs

Hosted by

The US lost almost 600,000 jobs last month, and unemployment rose to 7.6% of the labor force, the highest level in 16 years. With the Senate still debating the stimulus bill, President Obama used the numbers to call for action, and called it "inexcusable and irresponsible for any of us to get bogged down in distraction, delay or politics as usual while millions of Americans are being put out of work." Gail Russell Chaddock reports on Congress for the Christian Science Monitor.
