An economic adviser to President Obama suggested today that the U.S. might need a second stimulus package, Bloomberg reports.

In a speech in Singaore today, Laura Tyson, a member of President Obama's Economic Recovery Advisory Board and the head of the Council of Economic Advisers under Bill ClintonBill ClintonChelsea Clinton attends Muslim solidarity rally in NYC Former Defense chief: Trump's handling of national security 'dysfunctional' How dealmaker Trump can resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict MORE, said the $787 billion stimulus was "a bit too small," and while it will help, "the real economy is a sicker patient."

Tyson seemed to echo Joe BidenJoe BidenTop union offers backing for Ellison in DNC race John Kerry to teach at Yale on global issues Ellison needles Perez for 'unverifiable' claim of DNC support MORE's recent remarks that the administraiton had "misread" how bad the economy was.

"The economy is worse than we forecast on which the stimulus program was based," said Tyson. "We probably have already 2.5 million more job losses than anticipated."

Tyson emphasized that she was not speaking for the administration. Obama, Biden and other officials have called it premature to consider a second stimulus.
