Spending helps the Economy?

Does that make any sense? We have to 'shore up our faltering economy' by the government spending multiplied billions on economic stimulus plans and bailouts!

Yes, President Obama has been busy, busy! With his new economic recovery plan (to the tune of $825 billion!), they're going to somehow fix the economy, cut government spending, decrease the national debt, and not cut back on any current government programs. Except, of course, Guantanamo Bay.

Yeah, makes tons of sense. Sorry, I just don't think spending more money, and throwing more money at the problem is the answer. We've tried that, with public schools, and the economy too. (Remember the first 'economic stimulus package?)
