Make that $1 trillion more - David Rogers - POLITICO.com
I have a feeling the latest round of shenanigans put forth by the congresscritters today is going to cause a lot of slowdown. I don't think after today it will be an easy matter to pass a stimulus bill.
It might....if the Media were to give it any coverage. But they refuse to be anything but a lapdogs, and the week-end will take care of the news cycle for that. The only mention it will probably get will be on the Sunday Morning Talk shows. There might be some penetration there but don't hold out hope on that. It's gotten to the point that the Media and therefore the public cares more about $164-million than they do $1.64-trillion.

Here's a link to the transcriptions of the White House Press Briefings and Press Gaggles for anyone who wants to see how those go day-to-day.
It was worse than predicted:
