I'm still waiting to find out the details of the conference agreement on the recovery package, but I'm cautiously optimistic. I don't think it's going to be a magic wand, but it will be a big step forwards. I won't really relax until it clears the Senate, but what I'm hearing sounds like they made some reasonable choices.
MomsRising sent out an alert to their members on the recovery package, and asked for reports "if you or a family member have lost a job, a house, healthcare, or sleep because of the recession." Here are some of the responses they've gotten. It kills me to read them. It's scary out there.
