Senate Democrats saw the house’s $819 billion swindle us package and raised it to $900 billion. I guess they think making it a larger, round number will confuse people. Senate Republicans should give this freakish creation the same number of votes their house collegues did. I know that won’t happen because a number of Senate Republicans have tricky contests in 2010, but they should be smart enough to realize that the economy is going to be in the tank this cycle and they can only benefit from being in oppositin to Obama and the Democrats. You want to be against the guys who are going to have to explain to the public why they presied over the second Great Depression.
