    But I don't see any stimulas in the works. Since tax rates are going up on investment income (capitol gains etc) and personal rates, what happens wit hthat extra dough. I'm all for the tax and spend moniker depending on what the money is spent on. Because I know it's not going to sit idle. Is it? Because I know that that money isn't going to be used to pay the deficit.

    Also, aren't taxes on "middle class" people going up anyway with the extension of the payroll tax cut? Is this a way to blame the GOP for tax hikes? Or a quiet death of a good stimulus, albeit one that effectively "robs" Social Security?
