Decisive Vote Says 'Congress Should Pass Obama's Jobs Plan- Piece By Piece' At Intelligence Squared U.S. Debate
Last night NYU's Skirball Center saw an overwhelming victory for the Intelligence Squared U.S. debate, 'Congress 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.
