    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that Congress needs to "keep the door open" to a second stimulus package -- raising the question of how much the government could eventually spend on top of the $787 billion already allocated to rescue the country from dire economic straits.

    "The word of the day is confidence. Confidence in our markets, confidence in lending, confidence in our financial institutions," Pelosi said before suggesting the need for a second rescue package during a press conference Tuesday following a meeting with top economists.

    Mark Zandi, chief economist and founder of Moody's Economy, took a more definitive stance than Pelosi, telling reporters a second stimulus bill is necessary

    Anyone who didn't see this coming is crazy. Bailouts and spending packages only make our economy worse.

    The European Union just came out today--& stated no more money for economic stimulus.

    Wanna bet--that Europe comes out of this before we do?

    In no way shape or form does our disastrous foreign policy from the last administration make it o.k. for the Democratic leadership to waste hundreds of billions of dollars.

    So far we spent around 600 billion in Iraq
    700 Biilion first stimulus
    787 billion 2nd stimulus
    410 billion inflated budget
    ??? 3rd stimulus

    Anybody seeing a pattern? May I be so bold to ask...what has our buck got us to this point???
