House Passes Stimulus Bill; Again

And no Republicans voted for it; again.  It seems that the  Republicans want President Obama to fail so bad that they are willing to let the country sink into an even deeper recession.  Or are they?  All Republicans know that their votes are not needed to pass the bill in the House.  So voting “nay” does not mean anything in the short term.  What they are hoping for is that the stimulus would not do much to uplift the economy over the next year and half — which would give them plenty of ammunition to shoot at thier Democratic opponents in the mid-term elections.  The Senate vote is more critical.

Dems need at least three Republicans to join them before the bill can pass.  This should not be a problem because they go the three votes when the bill was $838 billion.  Stay tuned.
