President Obama is likely to sign the $789 billion stimulus package by Tuesday.
So, what can the average citizen expect from this? Here is a short breakdown:
Those tax breaks will amount to an extra $13 in your paycheck each week.
Those tax cuts make up about 1/3 of the package, with the rest going to spending initiatives such as infrastructure rebuilding, new federal programs and aid for state programs like Medicaid and "shovel-ready" projects.
$3.7 billion will go to local police programs to hire new officers.
