Increasing taxes on the rich and then spending that money at the federal level will stimulate the economy. It is difficullt to see how it couldn't, especially since the "rich" don't seem disposed to investing it themselves at the present time. An excellent example of the sort which you ask for would be WW2, when obviously almost all new investment and economic growth was through government spending. The result: jobs for millions, innovation, and an end to the Great Depression.
