I for one am pleased to see that Democrats will continue to speak truth to power in an Obama administration:

The $825 billion economic stimulus package rolled out by Democrats on Thursday might not be enough to prevent an economic catastrophe, according to the chief architect of the package.

House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey (D-Wis.) also told reporters it may not be the last effort to use big government spending to spur the economy....

The bill could be voted on in committee next Wednesday. That's the day after the inauguration of President-elect Obama - or, as Obey put it, "the day after the crown prince is sworn in."
