WFB used to say the point was to stand athwart history yelling stop. That has never been more important. The First Dope continues to float trial balloons of his different ideas for “boosting” the economy. Not that because of the level of success achieved by his previous efforts, the word “stimulus” has been banned. The White House didn’t really say anything other than they would do something but it would not be a “second stimulus”. That is something like the previous injunction to “to pass the bill so we can find out what is in it”. Some Democrats are reported to be running the other way. Rats and a sinking ship would be a proper metaphor.
