WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Barack Obama said on Friday he wanted Congress to pass another stimulus package as soon as possible to stabilize the U.S. economy.

“We are going to need to see a stimulus package passed either before or after the inauguration (on January 20). I want to see a stimulus package sooner rather than later,” Obama told a news conference in Chicago after meeting his economic advisers.
