(Topeka, KS)--Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins disagrees with the Obama administration on the proposed stimulus plan. She said she doesn't think it will work, and needs to focus on more tax cuts.

"We're talking about a trillion dollars here, nearly a trillion dollars and I don't even think it's going to stimulate the economy," Jenkins said.

She said she feels the package is filled with projects like education, universal health care and social services that would not immediately stimulate the economy. She also says it does not focus on infrastructure as much as some may think.

Jenkins, a CPA and former Kansas State Treasurer, says cutting taxes would be a better way to go. She suggests cutting the payroll tax in half to immediately help employers and employees.
