Political deficit spending

The glaring fact most obviously demonstrated by the wrangling over the stimulus is that Democrats suck at negotiating. They are fond of doing what Duhbya used to refuse to do: negotiating with themselves.

The Republicans can get more with only a single vote above cloture in the Senate, yet the Democrats are falling all over themselves to cave - even though what they're caving to is a continuation of the failed plutocratic policies that the voters just rejected.

Democrats need to start disciplining their own caucus and smacking the Republicans around.

As much as Democrats are sucking at this, it beats the hell out of having Republicans run rampant while they acquiesce to really bad and vicious policy. It appears that the Republicans are determined to emasculate the stimulus and let the Democrats suffer for it - along with the country.
