Stimulated yet?

The question of whether unlimited growth is a good thing for our world aside, this video explains why the newly signed economic bill will not lead to economic growth for our country. No matter what the money is being spent on, the fact that it comes from the hands of taxpayers, or in this case the hands of our grandchildren when they become taxpayers, and passes through the government bureaucracy, means that it is not being used in the most efficient manner possible. How can that possibly be better than leaving that money in the hands of those who earned it and setting up conditions that favor the use of that money to foster greater prosperity?
