In a move that should surprise very few, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed yesterday that Congress is “unlikely” to approve an economic stimulus package that included tax rebate checks during this calendar year.
The Democrats are, however, still pressing for approval on their $61 billion “economic stimulus package” which includes relief for the jobless and expanding Medicaid provisions; that package as currently proposed does not include any tax rebates. However, Pelosi rejected the notion that she would pad the bill with tax cuts or other measures to attract GOP votes. Right, cause Congress would never tack things onto a bill just to make it pass.Want more taxgirl goodness?
