WASHINGTON: US President George W. Bush on Thursday urged the House of Representatives to follow the Senate's lead and approve a massive economic rescue package, warning, "people's jobs are in jeopardy."
"This issue has gone way beyond New York and Wall Street. This is an issue that is affecting hard-working people," Bush said in his 14th appeal in the past 15 days for lawmakers to back the controversial proposal.
"They're worried about their savings, they're worried about their jobs, they're worried about their houses, they're worried about their small businesses, and the House of Representatives must listen to these voices and get this bill passed," said the US president.
