Well No Kidding Redux
So, the "Stimulus Package" has been working after all. Bet the people who were for this didn't think it would turn out like this:
"WASHINGTON — The $787 billion economic recovery package also is stimulating growth in the federal government as agencies hire thousands of workers and spend millions of dollars to oversee and implement the package, according to government records and spokesmen.....That's helped fuel the continued growth of the federal government, which increased by more than 25,000 employees"
Like I've been saying. People should know their history. When the "one" was saying he wanted an FDR style stimulus, most people didn't know that FDR's "New Deal" Wasn't about fixing the economy, it was about expanding federal authority. Bad way to have to learn it again.
