As I watch the Senate wrangling with the stimulus package, I feel like I'm watching the old shell game (and I don't mean Shell the gasoline company; I mean the carnival shill's shell game).
First they add 100 billion to the total, then they negotiate and SUBTRACT 100 billion, and we think---WOW!---they're really cutting it down.
Not all that different from the up-and-down gas prices. First $1.80 seems outrageous, then it goes to $4, then back down to $2 and we think---WOW!---cheap gas again! When it get's to $1.80, we're saying---WOW!---the problem is OVER!
