  •  More stimulus (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    As I've said, I've suspected, or at least held out a faint hope, that one reason the debt ceiling talks are taking so long is that Obama has instructed his staff to try to get some more stimulus, even if it's only in the form of a payroll tax cut extension. Not that we are going to get $1 trillion or whatever is necessary for the next few years, but perhaps we can get $200 billion or so in infrastructure spending or something like it for the next year or two. After all, if he's been interested in merely cutting future spending and getting a deal passed, why not agree to something a week ago, even if it included no revenue increases?
