Do you think the president's jobs bill will do any good?

Asked in Downtown Mountain View. Pictures and interviews by Nick Veronin.

"I don't think the president can do anything. If you think about it, he's not the employer."

Jesse Olson, North Dakota

"I think that the stimulus package is too little, too late. I think the economy is in such bad shape that there's not much government can really do."

Bob Relyea, Sunnyvale

"What he has done is a very good thing for the people in America. It will give employment to certain people."

Subbaraman P.V., Bangalor, India

"I do think Obama's plan may work."

Ian Andal, San Mateo

"I don't think it's a good plan, because that doesn't create jobs. You cannot change the economy by just government alone."

Vik Patel, Cupertino
