Senate vs. House

Well it looks like we'll have a bit of a show down as the House and Senate negotiate the final stimulus package to send to the President.

The Senate version of the bill is certainly less stimulative. The Center for American Progress crunched the numbers and report that not only will the Senate version save or create 12-15% fewer jobs, it will also end up costing more.

Here's hoping that the final product is closer to the house side and that at least some of the education and health stimulus (which Obama mentioned last night) get put back in.

So-called centrists are threatening to take their ball and go home if the final bill is different than the one they came up with.
