Obama says time for action on recovery plan is now

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says the time for talk on an economic recovery package is over and "the time for action is now."

Speaking at the Energy Department, Obama made a fresh plea for the stimulus plan that the Senate is debating. He cited the latest bad economic news of jobless claims as another reason for quick action.

He said: "The time for talk is over, the time for action is now."

Republicans and some Democrats have expressed reservations about the growing price tag of the package - more than $900 billion. Senate Democratic leaders hope to have a bill completed by Friday.
