As part of his continuing quest to sell lawmakers and the American people on his stimulus plan, President Obama penned an op-ed for the Washington Post that ran this morning.
"...each day we wait to begin the work of turning our economy around, more people lose their jobs, their savings and their homes," wrote the president. "And if nothing is done, this recession might linger for years. Our economy will lose 5 million more jobs. Unemployment will approach double digits. Our nation will sink deeper into a crisis that, at some point, we may not be able to reverse."
