    No such thing as a shovel ready job, Snil. Obama said so (after swearing up and down that there were).

    When it comes to the subject of economic stimulus - there has been no shortage of shovels being used in DC. They have used them well piling it high and deep

    Didn't you hear? The first stimulus just wasn't big enough.

    Exactly... I would say that many people are pretty much themselves online, but far too many people get much more in-your-face and aggressive since they are not actually facing anybody face to face. Everybody is an expert, blah blah blah

    I also found that there is a new rule that states:
    Budget Committee Chairman-to-be Paul Ryan (R-WI) will have new powers under the package to dictate spending priorities and restrictions for the federal budget. In case the House and Senate fail to reach agreement on a budget resolution, the congressman will then be able to ban any revisions to his guidelines.

    Thats a nice new power to have.
