President-elect Barack Obama says that when it comes to his stimulus plan, he remains confident that "we're going to get it done" -- despite objections from some Democratic senators over his tax proposals.

Obama says there will be a "whole host of good ideas" about how to help the economy, but that what's important is that the stimulus plan not be delayed.

He says he's going to make sure Congress "stays focused in the weeks to come, and gets this done."

Obama says he expects to "hone and refine" the stimulus plan in the coming weeks.

Democrats such as Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad complained that many of the incoming administration's proposed tax cuts wouldn't work. Republicans warned against excessive new spending.
