Washington (AP) An aide to house Republican leader John Boehner says the house GOP is demanding that majority democrats call Congress back into session before the elections to pass a measure to stimulate the economy.
Kevin Smith, Boehner's spokesman, said today that GOP leaders will unveil their proposal later in the day.
Their call comes as democrats hold meetings at the capitol with economic experts. They are considering convening Congress after the Nov. 4 elections to pass an economic aid measure costing as much as $150 billion.
Republicans' move also follows evidence that the financial meltdown is battering republican John McCain's presidential bid, as well as the chances of GOP house and senate candidates.
