  •  Most people here opposed the second round (0+ / 0-)

    because it was part of a bigger package that included a temporary two year extension of the bush tax cuts.

    The federal reserve's quantitative easing programs were a slo a form of stimulus, and Obama's belated restruxguring of the hamp program would count as maybe round four or five.

    The american jobs act and recent payroll tax proposals are also ideas for an additional stimulus.  

    You mean in 2010, before the election?  Good luck.  Would the ACA have been an acceptible sacrifice, for a very uncertsin outcome?  Remember, the House was too chicken to vote on taxes before the election, a new round of spending would go exactly nowhere.  Oh, i forgot the green jobs bill.  So did the senate.  The dream act would bphave boosted the economy, too.
