Money For Everything Except Saving The Economy

Ah, those fiscally conservative Democrats. The ones who spend hundreds of billions to kill people half way across the globe but who balk at a few hundred million to give health care for kids or to, you know, prevent a depression.
Still, Democrats are wary of slowing down the economic stimulus by provoking the opposition of Republicans, who have warned in recent days that the package must be neither excessive nor rushed. They are also fielding concerns from fiscally conservative Democrats.

It's important to remember that in the House, at least, the Dems have a sizeable majority and if they wanted to they could tell the Republicans to pound sand on every single issue. And people get all upset when crazy lefties suggest that running primaries against bad Democrats is a good idea.
