Economists Like the Jobs Act a Lot More Than Congress - Yahoo! News: "The news service surveyed economists and found them to be overwhelmingly positive on the jobs act, predicting anywhere from a 1.3 percent to a 2 percent boost to the nation's economy if it passes, preventing a recession in 2012. As the Washington Times' Steve Benen points out, "support for the American Jobs Act continues to be much stronger among economists than members of Congress." It gets even better for the White House: The economists Bloomberg surveyed said Republican plans would actually push the economy back toward recession. "
