    After passing President Obama's $787 billion stimulus bill in record time, Congress barely gets time to catch its breath before debating another massive spending bill.

    When lawmakers return Monday from a weeklong Presidents Day recess, they will have only two weeks to pass a $410 billion spending bill designed to keep most of the federal government operating for the rest of the fiscal year.

    Lawmakers delayed voting on spending bills for the fiscal year that began Oct. 1 because then-President Bush indicated that he would veto most of them.

    So lawmakers only approved full-year bills to run the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security and legislation designed to improve military quality of life to 2009 levels. All of the other departments are operating at 2008 funding levels based on a giant stopgap package, which expires in March 6.

    If you think they only are going to spend another 400 Billion, you are dreaming.

    If you think the Real cost of this last Stimulus will only be 787 Billion, You are dreaming.
