Horse Trading?

One can only hope that when Obama talks about $1 trillion or $1.2 or $1.3 trillion deficits and stimulus packages combined with $300 billion tax cuts that it is the beginning of negotiations. I trust we can safely assume that the figure will come in lower than "trillions" in an attempt to make his administration look like they really worked hard and kept the package "as low as possible." Therefore, the President is still the champion of the people.

When campaigning, every program was intended to take effect immediately or thereabouts. Now there appear to be delays. What? Did they find out that the folks who have to give their OK (Soros, etc.) need a little more time to formulate their input? It takes time for them to talk to each other, right? Are their votes commensurate with the amount of money involved? Or is there some other formula.....

There are a number of individuals/organizations roaming the internet from Catholic and fundamental church groups reminding us that prayer is the answer and of course they are right. We should all have one request in common. That The President-elect will change his extreme position on abortion rights and that as few people as possible will be hurt by any of the programs instituted by his attempts to solve the economic ills facing us.

It is going to be very difficult for any Republican in Congress to have any effect at all and with all the rubber stamp Dems such as Michigan's 7th District guy it is going to be a long, tough, uphill battle.

If anything happens later in the day, see ya.......
