As I have opined in previous posts the stimulus bill is certainly not perfect, but it's necessary. The economy needs a shot in the arm and hopefully this bill will do just that. Tomorrow a new bank rescue package will be proposed and perhaps it will be better than the last two. Friday's rally was welcome, but unless something very positive happens over the near term I can't see it lasting. About the most positive thing I can think of is that most the Republicans in the Senate decide to leave the country and set up a military dictatorship somewhere in South America. That would suit them just fine.
