"Behind every single one of these lost jobs is a family that is suffering. Every day that we delay the implementation of a comprehensive economic recovery package for Main Street is another day of struggle for American families who have lost a source of income. As we put together the pieces of a stimulus package that spends wisely and appropriately we must work with the sense of urgency that America's working families demand."
