So let me get this straight there, Gary. You believe that spending more than we have with no limitations on the degrees of entitlement is a good thing. That reducing the amount of wasted money on bureaucratic ineffieciency wil "hurt" the economy and that FDR's ingenious spending sprees saved us from the Depression? Wow. How exactly is wealth created then? If government could do it, don't you think that they would have done it by now in order to stay in power indefinately? FDR had a negative result all the way up to WWII, so please don't give him any accolades in dealing with the economy. Keynesian economics is NOT working and never has.
