    is masking the fact that time is money. Time is a significant factor in this equation. We don't have time to create the kind of legislation to do all things for all people. Not with the congress we have and in the middle of a presidential campaign with politicking at an all time high.

    I would love this to be something we could just ignore. But we aren't that lucky.

      Then tomorrow Pelosi should propose a full progressive bill with everything we want.  Pass it on straight party lines and dare Bush to veto it.

      But it isn't that simple, is it?  Either way, something noticably better than today's bill will be passed on Thursday, and the markets in a few weeks will end up precisely where they would had this passed.
