The deadening stimulus

Here is the lead in a Washington Post story on the political straits of the "stimulus package:"

Senate Democratic leaders conceded yesterday that they do not have the
votes to pass the stimulus bill as currently written and said that to gain
bipartisan support, they will seek to cut provisions that would not provide an
immediate boost to the economy.

All I can say is GOOD!

I am disappointed in President Obama. I think he should have been willing to be more critical of the Democrats instead of trying to rationalize the unnecessary parts of the stimulus package. It if were me, it would only be infrastructure.
