LIGHTING A FIRE....Felix Salmon finds a silver lining to today's very, very grim employment report:
Maybe the only real upside to this report is that it should light a fire under Congress to pass a stimulus package sooner rather than later including the release of the second tranche of TARP funds. Let's start getting money out the door now: that's more important than haggling over what goes where.
Well, it worked for FDR. Maybe it will work for BHO too.
