President Obama, Feb. 5, 2009:

“In recent days, there have been misguided criticisms of this plan that echo the failed theories that helped lead us into this crisis — the notion that tax cuts alone will solve all our problems; that we can meet our enormous tests with half-steps and piecemeal measures; that we can ignore fundamental challenges such as energy independence and the high cost of health care and still expect our economy and our country to thrive.

“I reject these theories, and so did the American people when they went to the polls in November and voted resoundingly for change. They know that we have tried it those ways for too long. And because we have, our health-care costs still rise faster than inflation. Our dependence on foreign oil still threatens our economy and our security. Our children still study in schools that put them at a disadvantage. We’ve seen the tragic consequences when our bridges crumble and our levees fail.

“Every day, our economy gets sicker — and the time for a remedy that puts Americans back to work, jump-starts our economy and invests in lasting growth is now.”

dollhouseIt’s official.

Doing nothing would have been better than spending $787 billion on a stimulus that has not worked.

The good news is they are too incompetent to have actually SPENT all of the money. Most is still not printed.

There is still hope. :D

Of course - they have delayed all spending until it can garner them the most political capital - or so they hope - election years:rolleyes:.

Doing nothing, not one thing at all, not a goddamned thing thing, is a hell of a lot better option than letting the government have any say at in economic affair. Especially with the Magic Negro Neophyte in charge.
