Washington (AFP) – US President Barack Obama vowed that Republicans will have a chance to put their imprint on his economic revival package, as he continues to seek bipartisan support in Congress for the bill. "I've done extraordinary outreach I think to Republicans because they had some good ideas. And I want to make sure that those ideas are incorporated," he told NBC television late Sunday, after weeks of courting GOP support. "I am confident that by the time we actually have the final package on the floor that we are going to see substantial support," Obama said. His remarks came as the Senate prepared to debate the 819-billion-dollar stimulus bill Monday, after the House of Representatives last week passed the legislation without a single Republican vote in support.
