Another Economic Stimulus Package, Anyone?

Three weeks before Election Day, Republicans and Democrats are calling for another economic stimulus package.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has talked of a $150 billion package -- but she's now stressing the need for hearings before deciding on how large it should be and what should be included.

Pelosi says priorities include infrastructure projects which would create jobs, as well as extending jobless benefits and food aid.

House Republicans say those moves won't stabilize the economy. They're pushing tax cuts, energy exploration and guaranteeing loans between banks.
