The PAYGO Tea Leaves On A Stimulus Bill
It looks like House Banking Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-MA) and House Education and Labor Committee Chairman George Miller (D-CA) are going to be the designated leaders for a stimulus bill in the House. Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) may play the same role in the Senate.
Note who has not been designated: House Budget Committee Chairman John Spratt (D-SC) and Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-ND).
This should end all talk about whether there will be much discussion about the pay-as-you-go rules this year.
