President Barack Obama says that "very modest differences" should not get in the way of swift congressional passage of a massive economic stimulus package.

Obama spoke Monday to reporters as he and Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas, the Republican vice chairman of the National Governors Association, were about to meet in the Oval Office about the plan.

Douglas agreed with Obama, saying that a stimulus package is essential to getting the country moving again. Douglas is among the several Republican governors who are breaking with their GOP colleagues in Congress to ask for approval of the plan.

The package would send billions to cash-strapped states for education, public works and health care.
