Most of today’s program will be devoted to the House Democrats’ fiscal suicide bill, otherwise known as an alleged stimulus plan.
A bunch of worthies have sponsored ReadTheStimulus.org so you can search the bill’s text for yourself. Perhaps you too have qualified for a federal bailout and just don’t know it.
I’ll also be playing the Amaze.fm song of the week. If you are a singer/songrwriter, be sure to upload your tunes this weekend.
I tried to book four different Republican leaders on the Hill today to talk about the stimulus package, and none were available. The idea that the GOP doesn’t have a Friday-Saturday-Sunday response room staffed with legislators ready to push the party’s points forward underscores why the party needs new thinking on its communications strategy.
