Economic stimulus hits the party circuit

My.BarackObama.com has launched its first grassroots initiative since the inauguration to add some much-needed political muscle — and with any luck a much-needed dose of common sense — to the push for the economic stimulus package. Dozens of local stimulus bill discussions for everyday folk have been scheduled throughout Colorado over the weekend and into the week ahead of a congressional conference committee that will hammer out a final compromise.

Check out a gathering near you or stay tuned to our liveblog at one event this evening beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Find out what residents think about the economy, the proposed stimulus plan and what they can do to help make things better here in the liveblog covering Sunday’s meeting at Higher Grounds Cafe in Golden.
