      As a businessman,
      he helped create a
      thousand new jobs
      and in Congress,      Murphy Support's Obama's Stimulus Plan to Create
      he'll work with       Investment and Jobs. The Daily Freeman wrote,
      President Obama to    "candidate Murphy, a small business
      spur investment       entrepreneur and venture capitalist,
      and create jobs       enthusiastically supports the Obama stimulus
      right here at         plan. So much so, he has made that support the
      home.                 centerpiece of his campaign. This support alone
                            pretty much should decide the issue of this
                            election. Think of it this way: The stimulus
                            plan is the plan for economic recovery put
                            forward by the new president, who was
                            convincingly elected on a platform that, in
                            broad brush, promised both substantive change
                            and just such a stimulus plan. Yes, we're as
                            outraged as anyone at the stimulus provision
                            that made the AIG bonus payments possible and
                            have said so in this space. But that's not an
                            argument against the entire stimulus plan. It's
                            an argument for corrective action, which is
                            exactly what is taking place. For all of its
                            warts, the $787 billion stimulus plan is
                            probably the best such plan that could have
                            been passed into law by Congress with the kind
                            of dispatch required when your economic house
                            is on fire." [Daily Freeman Endorsement
