If things weren't busy enough for the White House and congressional Democrats, economists are now calling for a second stimulus package to fight the rising unemployment rate, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Unemployment rose slightly to 9.5 percent in June, leading President Obama's critics to argue his $787 billion economic stimulus package is not doing enough for the economy.

Biden also refused to rule out a second stimulus package. That would put the White House in a tricky position, though. Only 10 percent of the original stimulus package has been spent so far, Biden said, so the remaining billions could still spur new jobs.
