Better late than never

Congress admits it went about the stimulus the wrong way:

After a year in which they wrestled with massive proposals to stimulate the economy and revamp health care, Democrats in Congress appear to be taking a new approach in 2010: Smaller is better.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and other Democrats say they intend to roll out their effort to address unemployment in a series of bills this year — instead of one giant measure — and the House of Representatives plans to start work next week on a single slice of health care legislation that has stalled in Congress.

And the president admits Obamacare will likely fail:

Tea leaves readers are wondering whether President Obama acknowledged last night the possibility that his health care plan could go down to death on Capitol Hill . . . "Then let's go ahead and make a decision. And it may be that -- you know ... if Congress decides we're not going to do it, even after all the facts are laid out, all the options are clear, then the American people can make a judgment as to whether this Congress has done the right thing for them or not."

Now, let's see if they've come to their senses permanently.
