The $800 billion stimilus bill isn't working. You really need to ask yourself how do we spend $800 billion on a stimilus bill and 6 months later Congress passes a $147 billion jobs bill.
What Obama, Reid and Pelosi don't understand is that stimulus isn't spending. They just don't get it.
Stimulus isn't to create jobs. In order to stimulate the economy you need to build the infrastructure so that private jobs are created.
During the Great Depression, the George Washington Bridge, Lincoln Tunnel, Hoover Dam etc were constructed and 80 years later the infrastructure is still in use. The current stimulus spending is digging us into a deaper hole with no way to pay the money back.
