White House (AP) Fresh off a trip overseas, President Bush today turns his attention back to the nation's slumping economy.

The president has summoned a group of business executives to the White House to help him highlight the investment tax breaks in the stimulus plan he and congress agreed on. That plan also includes the tax rebate checks that go into the mail next month.

Bush maintains the stimulus package is all that's needed to right the U.S. economy. But while he was in Europe there was more dire news: the worst monthly job loss in five years, and fed chief Ben Bernanke saying for the first time that a recession is possible.
