Obey will try to push more expensive jobs bill through
Wausau House Democrat Dave Obey says he'll try again to get a massive jobs bill through Congress.
In September, the House approved Obey's $61 billion package of public works projects aimed at stimulating the economy.
But the Senate and President Bush shot it down.
Now, with bigger Democratic majorities elected this week, Obey says he'll take another crack at it. And this time, it will be more extensive including money for energy development.
