Senate Passes Stimulus Bill, 61-37
By Frank Ahrens
The Senate passed the $838 billion stimulus plan with one vote to spare -- 61-37 -- moments ago, sending the bill to President Obama's desk for signing, after the two houses conference.
The Senate vote follows a partisan passage in the House, where it gained no Republican support.
Senate Republicans fought and won spending reductions to the House version of the plan, and gained additional tax cuts.
