Congressional Building

Congressional Building

Checking out the internet news today I came across this article. Now my brother, the financial analysis and stock broker told me around July that Congress is trying for another stimulus package for Americans. Well I said they are out of session now and there is a policy of make no decision in the political arena ya know, lol! No really there is. Especially since they were getting ready if not already out of session for the summer. When it comes to closing congressional sessions no decisions are made.

In this article I was reading this caught my eye:

If they are successful, a lame-duck session of Congress two weeks later would allow them to start work on a response to the credit crunch that has sent stock prices plummeting and also threatens to trigger a deep recession. It often takes two or three months for a new Congress to begin turning out legislation, particularly when a new president is settling into the White House.

On the other hand, by attempting to pass legislation next month, Democrats would have to negotiate with President George W. Bush, whose term runs until Jan. 20, 2009. Additionally, Senate Republicans, with 49 seats, could block any measure they opposed.

Yes after consulting with Obama, Democratic leaders want Congress to come back to work to start formulating another stimulus plan for Americans, per officials. We are talking $150 million. Where is this coming from? Are you concerned about the economy? I know I am I just wonder where all is this going to lead. I suppose we will have to wait until Congress mets if they do about this at all.

Pres Poll

Today and AP reported wrote an article on the Presidential race. Now despite all the rumblings going on with all the candidates from what I have gathered is that Obama’s popularity and likability has sored among voters. Basically more and more voters are feeling that he can win over McClain in the presidential race over Clinton.

From the article: Yahoo News

Those rating him as “not at all honest,” for example, jumped from 18 percent last fall to 27 percent in April. It came as he was put on the defensive over incendiary comments by his former pastor. But many holding such views are Republicans or conservative independents, who would be unlikely to vote in a Democratic primary or support a Democrat in the fall, anyway.

The most encouraging sign for Obama is that many Democrats who previously saw Clinton as their party’s best hope now give him that role. About one-third of them still prefer Clinton, but they have lost confidence in her electability.

It is interesting none the less to see that voters are ,as the election time countdown is narrowing, taking a more overall concerted look at the election of who is the best candidate to win over McClain.
