President Obama’s stimulus plan has cleared it’s first hurdle, with it’s passage in the House.  However, it was nowhere near a bipartisan victory.  The victory in the House is primarily attributable to a Democratic majority. And what’s more is that eleven Democrats actually voted against the $819 billion package.


As the bill prepares to be evaluated by the Senate, it’s fate is still not certain. Perhaps the bill with pass with some modification or with the addition of raised taxes, but regardless, the bail out is still only a proposal at this point. The Senate will vote on it’s version next week. Whatever the outcome, and whatever version is ultimately produced, it cannot be argued that the economy needs some kind of stimulus.
