    :eek: Which is another way of saying the Whitehouse admits the other two stimuluses didn't work! The fall of Keysenian economics. Oh the humanity!

    White House rules out sequel to stimulus bill - TheHill.com

    And they will keep "looking" until AFTER the November elections to see what they can get away with. :lol::lol::lol:

    This is pretty funny stuff, because it's as much as admitting the stimulus didn't work. The Big F-ing Deal, FDR Style New Deal II has gone down in flames.

    Liberalism is being discredited as we watch. No wonder liberals have become so hysterical on this board lately. It must be hard to watch their perfect utopian ideas of big government crash and burn.

    With unemployment at 15-20% in real numbers, there could be a case made for infrastructure spending. The real question of course would be that if the government hadn't been spending and warning about tax increases, would unemployment be where it is? Sort of hard to measure, just like jobs created or saved.

    The only money I've seen spend around here has been resurfacing and building 'fountains' in suburban downtown areas. Now the 'signs' about Obama? Big, splashy and expensive:

    Millions for Road Signs?: That's Stimulating? - ABC News

    Again I am not in favor of the Federal Government getting involved with what should be state and municipal projects, if though they are going to do so, it seems the money would be better spent on projects and not signs. It would also seem more of an investment if they were buildings like those build in the 30's or programs that truly were making neighborhoods better. Blacktop isn't all that expensive, until the Feds start getting involved.

    If you're going to attempt to blame Keynesian economics, at least be knowledgable enough to spell the word (Nevermind any clue as to what it means).

    please explain, in your own words, what Keysenian economics is... then we can read the rest of your OP.

    not really, we never had anything close to that economic system before. bush spent and did tax cuts at the same time (leaving the government to save nothing, while actually incurring debt) and then when obama came a long in a real recession and started spending he was only further accumulating debt and driving down the dollar.

    you can't have one president blow all the countries savings and then the next one follow keynes and except anything to work
