I'm going to predict that a republican congressman will introduce a bill for another economic stimulis package to be released before the election. it will be touted as necessary as too many Americans are suffering entering the holiday period with heating bills mounting, blah, blah, blah I also believe one of the 2 candidates if not both will talk of a stimulis package for next tax season as well which will just give people false hope. These stimulis' can't kick start a faltering economy and just prolong the necessary bottoming-out & stabilization that a natural boom/bust cycle will bring. I'm not saying democrats will oppose it as I'm sure they'll all vote overwhelmingly to support it. As you all know, I will not be in favor of any such bill. As a matter of fact, I'd be pissed off if Obama brings one up too. I think they're a waste and screw up the economy even more.
