    They studied what types of stimulus work to create more dollar bang per buck.

    UI benifits return 1.64 per buck
    Food stamps return 1.73 per buck
    General state aid return 1.36 per busk
    Infrastructure spending return 1.59 per buck

    I'll have to look more closely at the study.

    Surely other things besides government spending affect GDP and just how are those other things filtered out of the numbers?

    I hope you and everyone takes a good hard look at the study.

    I hope we Stop doing what we have been doing which is killing this country.

    Lets spend on things that actually give US a good return, Infrastructure, foodstamps, UI and the like and STOP doing endless tax cuts which give us NO fucking return.

    Your team screwed us up and did iditotic things like Cutting taxes in the middle of two wars.

    Do you have any idea how much of a historical NO NO that one is ?

    For some reason the republicans would just call you names when you pointed it out at the time.

    Can we return to sanity now that the Dems won?

    No more disastorous idiot policy please.

    Lets Do What Fucking Works for just ONCE please?

    The multiplier effect of stimulus money will continue to help the economy UNTIL people step into WALMARTS to buy something.

    Then the multiplier effect very quickly goes to China.

    And FWIW, it's not just WALMARTS it's damned near any store because so little is really made in the USA that everywhere you go the stores are stocking stuff made offshore.

    Because your team is trying to stop anything that works.

    You know the ones that fucked everything up?

    We will have to dump your asses at the curb and do it ourselves but I dont want to hear a god damned word about BiPartisan promises form you and your buddies asses when we do.

    Its obvious your team doesnt wnat to do anything that is good for this country and the whole country is about to see that as plain as day.

    I am on nobody's "team"

    i am on my team. i am looking out for myself, my family and my future. If i don't who will...You?

    And I will take a $1.10 return on a dollar of MY money before I give it to the fucking government to get what they say is a $1.70 return.
