Congress: An $80B bill?

— "Senate Democrats are considering a jobs bill in the range of $80 billion," The Hill writes. "The package is subject to change, but a draft summary of proposals under discussion includes small business credits, tens of billions of dollars in infrastructure spending, energy efficiency programs, money to hire police and firefighters and billions to boost lending to small businesses." 
 
There could be a hearing on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Feb. 11 with Secretary Gates and Admiral Mullen.
