Today's topic: The Economy, The Bailout, The Stimulus .

It was both a fun and a serious show today, and I think Bob hits one out of the park with his suggestion that the TARP houses somehow go to the firemen, policemen (and women of course) and teachers who cannot afford to live in their communities. Tony says Obama handed this "porcupine bill" over to Pelosi and isn't demonstrating leadership. Arianna says it's not a big enough package, and it doesn't do enough to really stimulate the new 21st century economy; they all argue whether or not this is the time for new policies, but agree that it's gotta move fast, even as it moves deliberately.
