I didn't. I was lazy. But, my instinct was right. As several of the Candidates for the Democratic nomination for "The Kennedy Seat" said last night, it isn't big enough (if you believe the solution is a Keynesian Stimulus). It is small potatoes and the 12 Apostles will fix it anyway, when they report out—won't they?
Now comes Senator Harry Reid, as told to us by The Hill:
Reid said he would revise parts of the proposal that some Senate Democrats have found unpalatable. The Nevada Democrat announced his new strategy on the same day he blocked a Republican effort to force a vote on Obama’s jobs bill.I think the Republicans could still pass this Turkey, minus the Broadband item, and pass it to Senator Reid. I am sure that Ms Pelosi and here Caucus would vote with the Republicans in support.
It is win-win. If it works, the Republicans are on the right side of history. If it doesn't the Republicans can say "we tried cooperation with the Dems one last time, now let's do it our way."
Hat tip to the Instapundit.
