The "stimulus" spending plan

"Much in the package appears unrelated to short-term stimulus or long-term competitiveness. For example, it would give $1 billion to aid states in the collection of child support, another $1 billion toward preparations for the 2010 census, $4 billion to support local law enforcement and $800 million to clean up hazardous and toxic waste sites."

Buying votes with out of control spending will not fix the economy. In the long term, it will make things worse.
