Stimulus to Senior Citizens

A boost may be on the way for senior citizens receiving social security.

As part of an economic stimulus plan, seniors would get a bonus payment of $300.

An extra $300 for veterans who get disability payments is also on the slate for review.

The bonus for seniors is one chapter in the finance committee's $355 billion proposal, which is a version of the stimulus plan sought by President Obama.

The president wants the bill on his desk by the middle of next month.
