A new road. A fixed bridge. A new monument to a politician.

This money cannot "spur economic growth". It will not create one single job (unless it is a temporary job to spend the money. Government money only creates demand for more government money. And round we go.

So far the "stimulus" has lost us 3.2 million jobs and counting. But, somehow, magically, 9.4% unemployment is a "good sign the economy is coming back". HUH!?!?!?!?

Throw the bumbs out.
