Yahoo (that means AP) news is reporting that the Senate has added about 100 billion dollars to the spending spree. Republicans are now suggesting that the government provide 4% mortgages to people and $15,000 home buyer tax CREDITS to EVERYONE who buys a home. You read that correctly. The party that purportedly believes in smaller government is pushing for all of that.
Democrats reportedly said in response "Hell yes!"
