No, there was no chance of that. How one could think you could go back and get a second bite of that apple is surreal.
Economist James Galbraith on President Obama’s inadequate stimulus plan and the the thought that Number 44 could go to Congress a second time to get the additional stimulus loot beyond the USD 787 billion already approved by the legislative body. There was an interesting point made about how the absence of a Cold War provides US policymakers with less motivation to spend money that would result in social improvements. Not sure I completely buy that viewpoint since social development has been highly uneven in America for many years prior. Look at segregation, for example.
