Last night NYU'€™s Skirball Center saw an overwhelming victory for the Intelligence Squared U.S. debate, '€œCongress Should Pass Obama'€™s Jobs Plan '€“ Piece By Piece.'€ According to the final votes, Cecilia Rouse and Mark Zandi won the debate by convincing 24% of the audience to change their minds to support the motion, thus winning the Oxford style debate. They argued Obama'€™s jobs plan is a necessary step toward avoiding another recession and stimulus legislation will stem an economic downturn.
