Spending has NEVER ended a recession

I am so thrilled that the republicans stood together as a team in opposition of Obama's supposed stimulus package. I am ardently opposed to this bill because it is not a stimulus package, all it is is a huge spending bill.

You take all the spending measures democrats wanted to get through Congress in the past eight years, and it is in this bill. It's a major spending bill under the guise of a stimulus package.

Political Wisdom #1: We must remember that NEVER in the history of civilized governments has a government EVER been able to spend its way out of a recession, or get out of a recession by increasing taxes. It has never happened.
So why is Obama and dems (minus 11 in the House) working to pass this bill? If it somehow stimulate the economy it will be the first time it has ever happened. Why do they wish to try it again?

It's pretty bad when a leader of the free world is taking advice from Communist governments like China and Cuba. Those are not the kind of governments we want to emulate in America (although it appears most dems do).

We have many examples of how tax cuts work in this country. But we can also look at Japan in the 1990s. In the 1990s Japan was going through a recession. So its leaders chose to increase spending. The recession did not go away until tax cuts were tried many years after the recession started.

Spending has failed and failed and failed, less government has succeeded every time it has been tried. Hmmmmm, does this take a genius to figure out.

I suppose I'm getting redundant here, but if something has failed every time it has been tried, why try it again. Only a government would do something so stupid and get away with it.

This is a perfect example of how there are repercussions of who you vote for. Although, it appears many Americans are blind to what is going on here.

But will they try and reject the money when it comes to their districts? Talking the talk is easy, but what about walking the walk?

One can only hope. But politicians will be politicians. Lord knows pork is a problem of both parties (and the same for the random corrupt politician).
