The Kansas City area welcomes President Bush as he spends a good deal of time in and around the city today. A major stop for the President was Hallmark Cards, where he spoke of the need for an economic incentives package to help make sure consumers don’t lose confidence in the economy.

Bush acknowledged there are some troubling signs with the economy and that it is weakening. He urged the Senate to quickly pass an economic stimulus bill. The President wrapped up his K.C. area visit with a stop at a fundraiser for Congressman Sam Graves.
