Democrats unveil $825 billion US stimulus measure

Democrats in the House of Representatives are circulating an $825 billion U.S. economic stimulus measure that emphasizes health care, education and highway construction as well as tax cuts for individuals and businesses.
A summary of the measure shows spending totalling roughly $550 billion and tax cuts of $275 billion, although the totals are expected to shift considerably as Congress works on the bill.
Democratic leaders plan to unveil the legislation later Thursday. The Associated Press obtained a copy in advance.
Democratic leaders have pledged to have a bill ready for President-elect Barack Obama to sign by mid-February.
