WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush told lawmakers on Thursday he wants tax rebates for families and breaks for businesses in a rescue plan for the struggling U.S. economy that could total up to $150 billion.
Amid worries that the United States may already be in a recession, Bush held a private conference call with leaders of the Democratic-led Congress and their Republican counterparts.
A delicate set of negotiations took place and the president shifted gears from his initial plan to outline an economic stimulus plan on his own. Instead, he agreed to hammer out the details of the package in collaboration with legislators, congressional sources said.

I wonder where this "lifting" will come from?
They could print more dollars, which will devalue it.
they could borrow more, which will put us further in debt.
It's an artificial stimulus, just to get us through to the elections.
Watch gas prices come down a little in the near future too.
It's a game.
