Senate Dems unhappy with level of energy spending in Obama stimulus plan

Senate Democrats yesterday called on President-elect Barack Obama to increase the amount of energy-related spending and tax breaks in the planned economic stimulus bill. In a closed-door meeting with Obama economic adviser Larry Summers and senior adviser David Axelrod, several Senate Democrats said they were unhappy with the proportion of the stimulus dollars and tax breaks directed toward energy projects. At the same time, several members questioned whether some of the tax breaks Obama is seeking would be effective in creating jobs and spurring economic recovery.
