Really brave of him to make this declaration since the bill would never get outr of the Democrat led senate.

Correct. I think there are three (maybe more) reasons for this: 1) people are in a defensive mode and want to have plenty of cash on hand because they fear losing their jobs or an economic collapse, 2) this is a backlash against Obama. People are not spending because they don't want the economy to improve while Obama is still in office, and 3) people are starving the government beast because they know that's the only way the beast will retreat.
If a Republican is elected in 2012, the wallets will open, not only on the part of individuals, but also on the part of businesses.
