Senate Republicans are now doubtful that the stimulus package will pass and urge people to actually take the time to think seriously and come up with a better product. Other people are saying different things and so I suppose that one must wait and see how matters turn out, but this is an encouraging development if it holds up.
Encouraging, and very decidedly . . . alien to normal governmental sensibilities, which usually consist of the following propositions:
- Something must be done.
- This is something.
- Therefore, this must be done.
Upon reading the article, one will readily find that these are, indeed, the very arguments that Democrats are making in favor of the stimulus package. All the more reason to ignore them.
