WASHINGTON-President Obama's $787 billion stimulus bill passed in the House of Representatives Friday afternoon by a 246-183 vote, about a half a day after the final bill was released to lawmakers. The Senate then passed the bill with just enough votes late Friday night 60-38, with three Republicans voting "yes."
