    I think he meant Keynesian economists across the board.

    Massive government spending hasn't worked yet with the first stimulus package. It isn't going to work with the second either. It didn't work with FDR in the 1930's. World War II bailed him out of that recession. It didn't work with Japan in the late 1980's and 1990's. What it will create is more deficit, and plenty of inflation. What it will create is more big government. It will create more welfare. Can one person tell me what the government has done that really worked well??? Our military is the best example I guess, but they are trying to change that, too.

    No shit sherlock. The banks have not used the money the way they said they would.

    No, let's go back to the last 8 years of the magic of the RNC Tax Cuts. They will solve everything.

    "economists from across the political spectrum agree" Actually true, X. He didn't say "all".

    Tax cuts aren't bad, but the government has to cut it's spending as well.

    yeah, why would we want people to keep more of what they make?

    they'd only buy new radios to listen to Rush or books by Ann Coulter

    Rayboy..you numpskull....the banks aren't using the money as the politicians thought they would. That stimulus package didn't require them to use it in any special way. See, this is what is wrong with your Big Government Mentality....it don't work, dude...so chill those jets of yours a little, OK???? As far as economists are concerned, far more say that goverment intervention will not work as the private sector would. Goverment intervention does not correct the problems that the business got themsleves into. Intervention may impede the business even more by stipulating how to run the business. This is not the goverments job...the goverment is run by a bunch of lawyers, not economists, not healthcare specialists, or bankers. They do know how to manipulate laws, though. So don't give them that much credit dude. Also, get over the Bush administration...I wasn't a big fan of his either, but he's gone now.
