To complaints that the bill is being pushed too swiftly, Obama said, "we're moving quickly not because we want to jam something down people's throats," but because it's necessary to prevent millions more lost jobs.

To worries that the plan will increase the federal deficit, the new president said he found it when he showed up on the job.

To those who say there aren't enough tax cuts, he said it is well balanced between tax relief and new spending.

And to GOP criticism that the stimulus had turned into a spending plan, he replied, "That's the point. Seriously, that's the point."
