Breaking down Obama’s jobs plan

President Obama urged Congress Thursday night to pass a $447 billion plan that he said will get the economy moving and create jobs. The proposal would cost a little more than half of the 2009 stimulus package and, according to Obama, be paid for by additional deficit reduction that he will outline Sept. 19.
