I Was Wondering

It's good to know that the president thinks (auto-start video) we've made all the right moves regarding the economy. It's odd that all the right moves didn't work, but anyway, I was wondering what the move after this next stimulus should be.

I mean, a trillion dollar stimulus didn't work - didn't even seem to budge unemployment. So, maybe borrowing and spending 447 billion dollars more is the exact right next thing to do. Sure. But I was wondering if maybe, in the interest of saving time, we shouldn't decide on how much the third stimulus should be now, just on the one-in-a-million chance that the second stimulus doesn't result in us all eating lobster, drinking champagne, and lighting big cigars with hundred dollar bills.

And another thought: what about Stimulus IV? and Stimulus V? If we can decide on the numbers now, think how much of a head start we'll have on Stimulus VI. (and note: the use of Roman numerals will make keeping track of them easier, like the Rocky movies)
