You should be very worried whenever you hear any politician say we are going to spend our way out of our difficulties.

Fiscal Policy did not get us out of the Great Depression. It won't fix our problems now. Why? Because for every bridge we fix over the Mississippi that needs fixing and would help to stimulate the economy, there will be 17 dog parks in Anywhere, USA and 12 Bridges-to-Nowhere. You might as well pour money down a rat hole. Remember, these are the same angels that gave us the mess we are in with Fannie and Freddie. It is their fault. And now you are counting on them for your economic redemption. Please pass the valuim.
