A Second Stimulus Package?
This article discusses the possibility of a second stimulus package. Up to $1200 per couple is expected to be mailed in May and a talk of another package is swirling in Washington. Democratic lawmakers are trying to pass a second economic aid package that would help homeowners avoid foreclosure and increase spending on bridges and transit systems. Lawmakers believe that bridges and transit systems are deteriorating due to the lack of attention brought on by the Iraq war. The success of the first stimulus package is still unknown; therefore, would it be smart to compose another package? Many believe that infusing the economy with money is not going to help the economic situation. If you believe the economic stimulus plan is going to help, what do you think about a second stimulus plan? I believe that the first stimulus plan will work; on the other hand, it needs to be watched carefully in order to determine whether a second plan should be introduced.
