Well, the stimulus package is all but signed into law. Looking through the details, I see that (other than getting the bill to pay for all of this spending) I qualify to deduct the sales tax off of any new car I buy this year. Whoop-de-frickin-do! If only someone made a car that I would actually want to buy.
I also note that NASA is getting $1.0B which is down yet again from the $1.5B which had been reduced to $1.3B. I need to dig a little deeper to see how all of the new money is allocated within NASA. I did submit a couple of proposals to the agency in response to their call for ideas on what could we do right away with a stimulus augmentation. I think there may still be a chance of getting at least one funded.
