Big Government's Trickle Down
Only it won't.
"White House adviser Larry Summers argued that any stimulus must be "targeted, timely and temporary." This bill does the opposite. Mr. Obama pledged to "scour our federal budget, line by line, and make meaningful cuts." His cuts are unspecific and fanciful, while Congress's spending will be real and record-setting. Discretionary domestic spending will have nearly doubled by the time Mr. Obama stops dithering and starts scouring."
OK, so Bush, Rove and the Republicans deserved the criticism they got for not controlling spending when they were in office. Is that any reason to give Obama and the Democrats a pass on this nightmare of a non-stimulus package?
