Economic Stimulus

The Senate continues debating President Obama’s economic stimulus plan today after several days of arguments last week.  The House package is around $820 billion and the Senate versions are between $780 billion (the Collins bill) and $900 billion (the Democrats bill).  What will happen?  What should happen?

Also this week, expect an announcement about a new round of bailouts for the banking industry.  Since the first $750 billion didn’t accomplish much we should do it again, right?
