    Well Congress gets it!

    WASHINGTON—The House plans to debate legislation this month to inject another $50 billion of stimulus into the faltering U.S. economy, mostly with the goal of creating new jobs, a senior House Democratic aide said Monday.

    Amid fears of wider economic damage from turmoil on Wall Street, the roughly $50 billion would aim to spark needed road, bridge and other construction projects that help create jobs, with details still being worked out, the aide said.

    The money also would be used to help low-income families pay winter heating bills and to extend unemployment benefits.

    Early this year, a $168 billion economic stimulus measure was enacted.

    Democrats also hope to include in this second economic stimulus measure more aid to states that are facing higher Medicaid health care costs.

    "Jobs, jobs, jobs. That's what it's about," according to the aide, who said the bulk of the stimulus money would be for creating new jobs.

    Sen. Carl Levin, a Michigan Democrat, also told reporters that an economic stimulus plan he wants the Senate to pass is "in the ballpark" of $50 billion.

    The Bush administration and Congress worked together to pass the first economic stimulus law. So far, the White House is resisting a second one.

            Economy is great here. With the exception of the hurricane and all but I'm sure we can turn that into some profit.

              Anywhere that has much to do with oil is doing great.

              Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.

                    Wouldn't that discourage preventative care visits, which then end up costing insurance more in the long run?

                      That's basically what happened. I've been at the company since last August, and had the insurance since last November. Decided to do the preventative thing last month (which was the first time I used my "insurance"), and got a bill today. Retarded, if you ask me.

                          Health insurance is getting a lot more expensive in the last couple years. I have a family member who has an upper mgmt position in the field and it's not likely to change. My coverage has me paying the first $2k... it used not to be like that. I can't imagine it getting much more expensive but I know it will.
