WASHINGTON, DC - Jan. 24: House Minority Leader John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. during a news conference announcing that House leaders and the Bush administration reached a compromise economic stimulus package Thursday built around rebates for most taxpayers and incentives for business investment. The measure, estimated at $150 billion, also would make it easier for homeowners to refinance their adjustable-rate mortgage loans into fixed-rate mortgages insured by the Federal Housing Administration. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Minority Leader John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, called on members of their respective caucuses to line up behind the package so it can quickly be passed by the House and sent to the Senate. President Bush added his encouragement. "Because the country needs this boost to the economy now, I urge the House and the Senate to enact this economic growth agreement into law as soon as possible," he said. (Photo by Scott J.
