Look For The Stimulus Bill To Get Bigger

Just some news about the stimulus bill from the weekend:
  • Nancy Pelosi said she is still against nationalizing any banks, but is seeking more money to buy up more toxic assets from banks.

  • Home builders and other industries are lobbying congress to add more incentives for themselves in the bill.

  • John McCain said earlier today on "Fox News Sunday" that he wants a re-write of the bill and would not support the bill the way it is right now. On the flipside, Nancy Pelosi said she is willing to consider GOP ideas, but is unlikely to add the larger tax cuts the GOP wants. 

  • House Minority Leader John Boehner stated he is voting against the bill if it is not changed.
