It Didn't Do Much The First Time

The $152 billion tax rebate that went out a few months ago hasn't done much so far so why not try it again.
Senate Democrats plan to unveil a second fiscal stimulus plan next week, this one worth at least $50 billion, arguing that soaring energy prices and the crisis in the housing market require a major jobs program to kick-start a faltering economy.

And heck if putting our children's future further into debt doesn't work the second time around, we can always go with the plan from the man who admits knowing nothing about economics.
John McCain said Thursday that his proposal to suspend the gas tax for three months this summer may need to be extended longer if high gas prices continue to take a toll on the economy.

Because we all know $4/gal gas versus $4.20/gal gas will make all the difference...
